Description Paul Reece 2004-05-29 07:50:27 UTC
	Machine configured with NIS server/client and UserMode PPP (for PPPoE).
	Startup hangs when PPP is started during boot.  Problem also apparent
	in earlier versions.


in /etc/rc.network where usermode ppp is started:

	su -m ${ppp_user} -c "exec ${ppp_command}"

	'su' is hanging as NIS has not yet been started.  NIS needs to be
	started prior to any use of 'su' in rc files.
How-To-Repeat: Configure machine to use NIS and Usermode PPP on startup.
