Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 9552
ifup-ppp and ppp-watch not good!
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:12:38 EDT
I am using Red Hat Linux 6.0 as dial-on-demand machine. When I upgrade to
6.1, I found that the DOD become weird.
In 6.0, I configure PPP device netcfg. Then I edit /etc/ppp/options to be
So that the ppp0 device is always up when booting up. The DOD is up to the
pppd to control.
In 6.1, the ifup-ppp is using ppp-watch... and this ppp-watch seems trying
to "make sure" the link is up and failed to know such DOD in /etc/ppp/
Can ppp-watch be fixed to acknowledge the DOD? Is it fixed in 6.2beta?
