Endless Loop: ppp0 Unregister Netdevice: waiting for ppp0 to be free.
Fedora Core2, 56k dial up external modem,
The following error message happens when I deactivate ppp0
Unregister Netdevice: waiting for ppp0 to become free Usage count =1
Activation so far seems OK.
Disturbingly its one of those intermittant problems (although its 9/10 now)
Closing down computer will not stop it, unplugging modem still has message endlessly looping. Connection has been fine for about 2 months (or more maybe), I have not changed anything regarding the modem (bar a change of ISP but that was not the cause as problem started weeks after that).
System Monitor (little graphic thingy) says when the loop occurs its between 96% and 100% proccesor usage. Cant think of any other relivant info.
Oh BTW it serves internet connection to a Win XP pro gaming, arr errm work machine (if that makes any differnce)
I'd rather be crushed under a stampede of friendly Penguins, than to look at them through Windows from afar.....
