User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3a)
Gecko/20021207 Phoenix/0.5

Description of problem:
The command used to bring up my modem connection to the internet:
	/sbin/ifup ppp0
stopped working, and produced the following error message:
	Failed to activate ppp0 with error 8 (from man pppd ->The connect script failed
(returned a non-zero exit status))

Contents of file ppp0
	connect "/usr/bin/wvdial --remotename ppp0 --chat 'Virgin'"

Entering the command manually
	/usr/bin/wvdial --remotename ppp0 --chat 'Virgin'
produced the follwing error message
	/usr/bin/wvdial: error while loading shared libraries: unexpected reloc type 0x05

Action to solve problem
Erase and reinstall wvdial rpm
	rpm -e --nodeps wvdial
	rpm -i wvdial-xxxx.rpm
This fixed the problem.

Comment 1 Miloslav Trmac 2003-03-14 11:07:44 EST
Do you use prelink?
I've had similar problems with prelink several times now.
Undoing prelinking fixed the problem, after prelinking
again this didn't occur any more (until after about a month
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2003-03-14 13:44:45 EST
Yes, I have prelinked (with options --all --conserve-memory)

It's going to be quite hard to reproduce this one though I think.
Comment 3 Miloslav Trmac 2003-03-14 18:21:53 EST
My guess would be as simple as:
* Prelink an executable relying on library
* Upgrade the library
Obviously this doesn't happen with all executables, but the fact
it happened to me *twice* with ghostscript indicates something.

I'll try to reproduce it on Sunday.
