Description Radu Rendec 2012-12-10 17:36:58 UTC
Description of problem:
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-post doesn't contain #!/bin/bash at the beginning of the file, therefore it cannot be executed as a separate shell (process).

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

How reproducible:
Manually invoking pppd doesn't honour "route-zzz" files in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts - where "zzz" stands for the ppp peer name. This is because /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-post tries to execute /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-post as an external command.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure a ppp peer the "old-school" way, using /etc/ppp/peers, chap-secrets, etc
2. manually start pppd, using "pppd <peer_name>"
Actual results:
Custom routes defined in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-<peer_name> are not added.
