Description Russell Stuart 2000-02-22 18:36:50 EST
When a ppp connection starts /etc/ppp/ip-up creates a file
called /var/run/ppp-logical-device.dev which contains the interface device
name of the ppp link.

This file is never deleted.  It should be cleaned up by /etc/ppp/ip-down.
This can be done by adding this line (which is an overkill but anyway):

[ ".$(cat /var/run/ppp-${LOGDEVICE}.dev)" = ".$REALDEVICE" ] &&
rm /var/run/ppp-${LOGDEVICE}.dev

Is this still the case with the initscripts package from Raw Hide?  There's no
mention of this file in our latest build tree.

 closed, lack of input.
