apt-get update fails after login
I am curently using redhat 9 and like it but I want better control and more options. So I want to switch to debian woody or sarge. I downloaded and installed the base system. Everything works as well as I need until I have the time to recompile the kernel for apm. But My problem is that I go to use apt-get update so I can get the index file for install. First pon, works fine no output. then ping google. works fine. I leave it running and switch tty's then apt-get update it logs in and authenticates finds the file and starts to download. It says waiting [ 0% ] . then I look at ping on the other tty and it has stoped. So as far as I can decern apt-get is killing my ppp conection. anyone have a sugestion for a fix to install the rest of debian??
