odd "pppd call" behaviour in bash on fc3
I have a couple of machines using Fedora Core 3 and one has an annoying problem that if i place the pppd call for the ADSL modem card inside an executable bash text file it fails with an error.
if i type it by hand its fine (both executed as root).
e.g. pppd call adsl
will work fine at the prompt.
stick it in a file and chmod it +x then execute the file and pppd bombs out with an error.
it only does it on one machine, not the other ?!? both running the same kernel with Selinux disabled.
i basically want it to run from rc.local but any file it refuses to play ball.
i tried all sorts of things with adding paths and other stuff.
cheers for any ideas on this.
