I uninstalled it and installed it after downloading it from the internet. I still have the same problem. Why is it looking for /dev/ttySL0 and why is kppp working fine while wvdial is giving me problems?

Jatt,
you said
"Actually, I was root and it still returns that command not found. I got kppp working now..so I dont need wvdial"
but you didnt say HOW you got kppp working.
I have same problem, I dial up, connect for hours, can ping but cant surf. I can ifconfig sez ppp0 is happy, and i can only ping those 2 addr's (mine and my IP's). I dont get dropped, but cant surf.
What did you do to fix kppp?
I'm going to check Mara's route idea... i never touched route!
and no Howto's I've read mentionit in dialup or ppp configs.

BTW how does one save these pages? I'm forced to use W98 cuz Linux surfing is broken but IE5 dies horribly when asked to save these pages (lemme outta here!)

regards, tomp

Talking

Mara, Jatt
Manually running the 2 route commands
route del default
route add default ppp0
as 'root'
got me up already, and I'm now running RH7.2rtai with Mozilla 0.9.2.1
and replying
way cool
Mara, where do these 2 lines get automated? what files?
I tried adding them to kppp's dialogs but it didnt work,
only using std ppp-on scripts, then typing route cmds into a console has worked (not automatic).
thanks again
tomp

setting up my dialup connection, I learned that a very important thing was to have a modem init string, be sure to know what modem you have, have the drivers fo it, and there is a few websites that are collecting common init strings

have fun

I tried those two commands (route del default and route add default ppp0) a week ago or so and they didnt help. Wvdial is still crashing but kppp works fine. tomp_tag, I didnt do anything to fix kppp, you just fix your /etc/resolv.conf, /etc/host.conf and /etc/ppp/options files. make sure there is no "lock" in /etc/ppp/options file. That was causing me problems.
cool
