Description Chris Runge 2000-01-23 06:50:49 EST
I use the RH PPP Dialer to connect to the Internet.  It displays "Waiting
to connect to Mindspring", then actually does connect, but the "Waiting to
connect to Mindspring" still stays up.

$ rpm -q rp3 wvdial initscripts
rp3-1.0.5-1
wvdial-1.41-1
initscripts-4.82-1
Comment 1 Jules Stuifbergen 2000-01-31 08:00:59 EST
I experienced the same problem, with newer rpms.

rp3-1.0.6-1
wvdial-1.41-2
ppp-2.3.11-1

Furthermore:
There's no option to disable PEERDNS. My resolv.conf gets overwritten when using
rp3, (not when debugging with rp3-config).
Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-03-06 10:20:59 EST
The key package as far as the "waiting to connect..." dialog is concerned is
initscripts.  Newer initscripts packages also preserve the contents of your
resolve.conf if the nameservers returned by pppd are already in there.  Peer DNS
can be toggled off by adding the line
PEERDNS=no
to the appropriate file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts.
Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-04-06 16:39:59 EDT
We've verified that this is fixed in 6.2, available from our FTP site in
ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/redhat-6.2/i386/RedHat/RPMS/.  The key packages
are initscripts, ppp, wvdial, and rp3.
