I tried the 5the time now and I actually waited till the floppy loaded and everything

After I typed:
rpm -i LNUX_3ComMdm-1.0-1.i386.rpm >ENTER

And it said: "package already installed"

Thats a good sign. And then I took out the floppy, and I went into NIC under MCC to configure the Internet since I cant locate KPPP.

It JUST DOES NOT want to accept the modem. Just does not recognize it. Maybe the driver itself is not compatible. I dont know. Im lost.

All I need is a connection and I'll be a happy camper. I will give myself a time limit till next week and if its a no show, then I give up.

you should really try to take a little time and understand what you are doing...

it's pointless to go around typing-in commands thoughtlessly...

look in your programs menu... there has to be some kinda dial-up utility in there somewhere... you don't HAVE to use KPPP, although you really SHOULD already have it installed if you have KDE...

you're lost because you still don't know the basics, that's normal... relax...

Quote:
I did that in Xterm a while back. I typed KPPP and "No such directory or file"
KPP is not the same as kppp... linux is case sensitive...

I did these commands like you told me.

mount /mnt/floppy
cd /mnt/floppy
rpm -i LNUX_3ComMdm-1.0-1.i386.rpm >ENTER
message: "package already installed"

I took out the floppy and went into DrakConnect and configured my Internet connection. The modem is on COM3 under Windows. I had checked COM3 in DrakConnect Configuration Wizard. And still the connection is failed.

Please tell me what I am doing wrong.

In regards to the kppp, I meant I typed it all in lower case "kppp" pressed enter and no such directory. Then I went into Install packages List and I cant even locate it there. (this was few days ago).

Is there any other dialer that I could use? Or just stick with the Drak Connect Config under NIC in MCC???

Please tell me what Im doing wrong.

If all else fails, then I need to get an external modem.

Im using the new Modem 5610B for Windows and Linux.

I downloaded the driver files what yuo gave me in USR website (the RPM file)

Downloaded it to a floppy under Windows. Then I booted into Linux put the floppy in the drive and typed the exact command what you gave me.

Like this:
root@myname: mount /mnt/floppy
root@myname: cd /mnt/floppy
root@myname: rpm -i LNUX_3ComMdm-1.0-1.i386.rpm
message: Package already installed

(This was last night)

Then I went into the MCC and under DrakConnect, I began configuring my ISP, Phone#, Login ID, password, PAP blah blah......

Then it showed me the list of COM Ports and I selected the COM3 since my modem is on COM3 under Windows.

Then, it asked me if I wanna connect to the net Now or Later so i clicked on Yes (now). It then started to do a connection test and said "Connection Failed please reconfigure your config settings" or something like that.

However, the eth0 is not booted upon boot. I disabled the eth0. I dont know if thats the problem.

I cant post the results because I dont like to reboot and reboot into two OSs all the time.

You mean like this for example??

root@myname: cat /etc/init.d/serial | grep COMPORT >ENTER
root@myname: ls -l /dev/modem >ENTER


Couple more question in regards to these commands above:

Do I need the floppy in the drive?

What character is after the "serial" There seems to be a "line-like" character. Whick keyboard button is that?

And after these commands what will I have to do next???

Are sure this time it will work because I hate to dish out another 100 for an external modem.

yes, the "enter" is always "understood"...

no, you only needed that to install the drivers... you're through with that part...

Quote:

it's called a "pipe", it sends the output of one command to the input of another... on my keyboard it's the key to the right of the right shift...

by the way, you don't need to type these manually, you can simply just copy and paste them into your terminal...

if you have a middle mouse button, you can highlight the text and then it will automatically be dropped wherever you hit the middle mouse button, as long as the source text is still highlighted...

Quote:

first post the output of the commands, let's take it a step a time...

remember you don't need to type the output here manually, you can just select it and paste it... in fact, it's ALWAYS recommended to do that...

if you use "konsole" instead of "xterm" you'll get regular copy/paste functionality, but both give you the highlight/paste functionality...

How can I Copy/Paste when Im rebooting the PC? It wont work like that.

BTW, I cant locate the Pipe in my keyboard.

I highlighted with my mouse using the left-button of my mouse and and highlighted it. I selected Copy Text.

But it wont work after the computer reboots


NEVER MIND I GOT THE PIPE KEY ALL FIGURED OUT

Ok heres one of the results as the second command gave me a bad Syntax error:

COMPORT= /dev/ttyS3
$ {COMMDM} ${COMPORT}
$ {COMMDM} ${COMPORT}
In -s $ {COMPORT] /dev/modem

As for the second command I it gave me a syntax error. Tell me,

It gave me a syntax error

It gives me an error after I type in the second command. It has to do with the type of characters that I might of typed in wrong.

Please explain the exact syntax please.

Here is what I typed:

ls -l /dev/modem

Its giving me an error message of bad syntax or something

relax, you're almost there...


Quote:
COMPORT= /dev/ttyS3
okay, you need to open the file /etc/init.d/serial using a text editor (as root) and you wanna change that line from this:

COMPORT= /dev/ttyS3

to THIS:

COMPORT= /dev/ttyS4

in other words, just change that "3" to a "4"...

ls -l /dev/modem

well, you typed it in perfectly... are you SURE the error wasn't a "file not found" error?? it would look like this:

ls: /dev/modem: No such file or directory

Nope.

Ok, do I need to type the whole command again???? or just open up the text editor using Gedit???

Now once the text editor is open (Gedit), then what command do I have to type?

Or do I do it the same way as with the "Eth0" Problem??? Like FILE/OPEN etc...??? (Which I would assume).

Now, after changing this, what will I have to do next? Reboot, or what?

Also, do I have to re-enable the "Bringing up eth0"??? I hope not.
