good morning folks. i am having trouble with pppd connecting me to the internet using the MEPIS live cd (2004.6). i am testing a machine to see if it will run mepis. it did well with the ethernet connection, but my friend only has dial-up right now. i've booted in both kernels and tried to log in as both a user and then su with no success. i have a Diamond supra express external serial modem. mepis sees the modem, and the modem query comes out okay. I don't think the problem is with mepis in particular. it seems like kppp and pppd are not working together properly. here's what happens:
"Timeout has expired while waiting for the PPPD interface to come up.
PPPD ERROR LOG
can not open any of the following files
THIS IS VERY FRUSTRATING!!!
I bought an external modem because all the mepis forums and the 'point and click linux' book about mepis say external modems should ALWAYS work with MEPIS and any other linux distro. can anyone help with this problem?
I think you guys haven't noticed it's a live cd, don't get much chance to change what's burned onto the disc, eh..
I'm interested in the fact pppd says it can't access files that only syslog is supposed to write to.
Check to make sure the syslog daemon is running with ps aux and also do ls -l /var/log/syslog.ppp and the other 2 logfiles to make sure they exist.
Do you have a link to the cd iso please?
It would help to see it running..
