Description of problem:
/sbin/ifup hangs when I try to connect (either through the commandline or
through redhat-config-network, and /var/log/messages reads:
Aug 5 20:04:25 hive pppd: pppd 2.4.1 started by root, uid 0
Aug 5 20:04:25 hive ifup-ppp: pppd started for ppp0 on /dev/ttyS1 at 38400
Aug 5 20:04:25 hive pppd: Connect script failed
Aug 5 20:04:26 hive pppd: Exit.
ifup doesn't return (exit), but keeps trying, and the above message keeps
repeating until I ^C
wvdial still works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure modem and dial-up account
Actual Results: as above - /var/log/messages reads "connect script failed" but
ifup keeps trying to connect
Expected Results: connection to internet, ifup exits.
Whoops, handling of --remotename on the command line fell up when we updated to
1.53. Fixed in 1.53-5 and later.
