pppd, ip-up and ip-down

Hi,
I just upgraded pppd and I found that it has deleted my
/etc/ppp/ip-up and ip-down files and replaced with empty files  :evil:

This is bad, can be solved for future updates?

Thanx,
Carlo

Re: pppd, ip-up and ip-down

Replacing config files during updates is pretty much normal pacman upgrade behavior. If you don't want these files to be messed with, add this line to your /etc/pacman.conf

NoUpgrade   = etc/ppp/ip-up etc/ppp/ip-down

Re: pppd, ip-up and ip-down

NoUpgrade is not a complete solution. the package is supposed to know which files are config files, in order to back up with .pacsave

speaking of which... did you check to see if your pppd conf files have been backed up? smile perhaps it's working normally.

the PPP pkgbuild wrote:

backup=('etc/ppp/chap-secrets' 'etc/ppp/pap-secrets' 'etc/ppp/options')

It would appear that it does not back the files in question up.

No, the files have been overwritten, not backed up sad

I think the better solution is to add the two files in this line of PKGBUILD.

Re: pppd, ip-up and ip-down

I agree these two files should be included in the backup=() array. it is a completely reasonable and  easy request.

i would be more inclined to file it as a feature request as it is not so much a bug as an oversight.
