Exclamation Problem with Firestarter firewall


Hello!

I just installed FEDORA CORE 5 and tried to install Firestarter...well, I did already installed it and went through the starting wizard, but when i try to actually start it i get an error message:

FAILED TO START THE FIREWALL

The device eth0 is not ready.

Please check the network device settings and make sure your Internet connection is active.

Well, my internet connection IS active (ADSL, ppp0)...so i dunno what's wrong..

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi
First of all, I'm translating this, I'm on a German system. But here's the solution:
Go to edit > settings
Network settings (as I said, this is a translation, so I'm not sure if that's what it's called in English, but it should be the first option under "Firewall"
Choose ppp0 as the device for Internet (first one)
That should solve it, hopefully.

Regards, tpetri1807
