Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 9009
/etc/ppp/ip-up calls ifup-post with unset variable
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
ifup-post is called by ip-up using the variable LOGDEVICE, which is set
from $6, which is unset. This leads to ifup-post not functioning correctly.
Maybe it should read
Where REALDEVICE is $1, which is the actual device name. I have made this
substitution in my system and this seems to make things work as I believe
they are intended.
If I have this wrong (not unlikely) I would be grateful for any pointers.

/etc/ppp/ip-up after change noted in my report
Please verify that the DEVICE variable is set in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-???. The sixth
parameter is set when ifup-ppp adds "ipparam $DEVICE"
to the list of options passed to pppd, and pppd should
then pass it along to ip-up as $6.
Oops .. I just reread my initial comments and realised I hadn't mentioned that
it is using the ISDN ipppd not the original pppd.
