Description Russell Stuart 2000-02-22 18:15:16 EST
When pppd is passed the "pty script" parameter the tty-device ($2) passed
to /etc/ppp/ip-up is empty.  This is fine.  When /etc/ppp/ip-up
calls /etc/ppp/ip-up.local it passes $*, which breaks when $2 is empty.
The paramaters effectively all get shifted one left, so the tty-device
becomes the speed, and the speed becomes the network-number, and so on.

This can be fixed by changing this line in /etc/ppp/ip-up:
  [ -x /etc/ppp/ip-up.local ] && /etc/ppp/ip-up.local $*
  [ -x /etc/ppp/ip-up.local ] && /etc/ppp/ip-up.local "$@"

This will be fixed in initscripts 5.01 in Raw Hide.
