Description janc 2000-01-30 07:40:50 UTC
If you delete an account with rp3-config, the ifcfg-ppp* file is
removed, but the /etc/wvdial.conf entry is not.  When you try to
recreate one with the same name, it complains that it already
exists, although it does not appear in the listing.

Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-02-05 03:45:59 UTC
This looks to be fixed in rp3-1.0.7 in GNOME CVS and Raw Hide.  Please try
upgrading to this version and let me know if it fixes the problem.

It appears that there is some discrepancy between rp3/wvdial.conf and
ppp/pap-secrets, possibly due to an upgraded system:

If the pap-secrets contained a server name of anything other than an asterisk,
then no matter what you do to wvdial, it'll still take the pap-secrets secret
(perhaps in the order that it was entered - if doing an upgrade, the old entry
of ppp0 will still be present).  Manually changing the server to * fixes this

Comment 3 Stephen John Smoogen 2003-01-24 23:34:37 UTC
Bug 8976 has been closed because a workaround in final message, and rp3 is a
deprecated package that is not in the latest releases of Red Hat Linux.
