Description Robert Vogelgesang 2012-07-18 11:28:40 UTC
Description of problem:
After installation of rp-pppoe, the pppoe-server is enabled by default

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install rp-pppoe using yum or the GUI
2. chkconfig --list pppoe-server shows that pppoe-server is enabled
Actual results:
pppoe-server gets started at each boot.

Expected results:
pppoe-server should not run by default, but only when enabled by the admin.

Additional info:
IMHO, the standard usage of rp-pppoe is running DSL connections as a client, connecting to some remote server, and not running a DSL network access server.

Current Fedora has this fixed, but this could be a side-effect of the conversion to systemd instead of SysV init.

Comment 2 RHEL Program Management 2012-09-07 05:26:18 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
