I'm sometimes seeing odd behaviour when I run PPP. When I start PPP, the
chat script sometimes fails because it gets no response from the modem.
If I run PPP again, it always works second time. When PPP finishes (killed
or timeout), the ip-down script gets stuck :
UID PID PPID CPU PRI NI VSZ RSS WCHAN STAT TT TIME COMMAND
0 10322 10306 0 3 0 496 152 ttyopn Is ?? 0:00.12 /bin/sh /etc/ppp/ip-down ppp0 /dev/ttya 38400 IP1 IP2
The two problems aren't necessarily related (i.e. if ip-down is stuck, the
next PPP doesn't always fail).
This is with a modem on the builtin serial ports on a sparc. It's possible
that the same problem affects ISDN4BSD on the atari.
Anyone else see this?
My other computer also runs NetBSD
