                   Red Hat, Inc. Red Hat Bug Fix Advisory

Synopsis:          Updated ppp packages available
Advisory ID:       RHBA-2002:037-04
Issue date:        2002-02-27
Updated on:        2002-04-30
Product:           Red Hat Linux
Keywords:          pppd cbcp ppp
Cross references:  

1. Topic:

Updated ppp packages are available for Red Hat Linux 7.2.  These updates
fix a bug which hampered interoperability with other PPP implementations.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.2 - i386, ia64

3. Problem description:

The version of pppd included in Red Hat Linux 7.2 incorrectly advertised
support for CBCP.  If a peer attempted to configure use of this protocol,
the LCP negotiation and the connection attempt would fail.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:


This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

55367 - IPCP timeout with MS clients (No network protocols running)

6. RPMs required:

Red Hat Linux 7.2:




7. Verification:

You can verify each package with the following command:
    rpm --checksig  <filename>

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or
tampered with, examine only the md5sum with the following command:
    rpm --checksig --nogpg <filename>
