Lt Winmodem Setup Need Help


Ok installed mandrake 9.1 and running a Lucent LtWinmodem which well isn't supported.I downloaded what I believe to be the driver for it and saved to a floppy.I opened the floppy and double clicked to install which it ran through.Now I was reading on the web to Set up KPPP device choose /dev/modem and save.Well I looked from the kde desktop and first how and where do I set up kppp.I basically need help or the steps to basically get it to see my modem and allow me to get online with it.Thank You

Hi,
goto Kmenu->Networking->Remote Access->KPPP.
Select 'setup' and fill in the relevant details under the accounts tab, the device tab is where you select /dev/modem. Then goto the modem tab and select 'query modem' and see what happens. If all is ok you should be able to dial out to your isp.

Right you don't appear to have KPPP installed. Double check do
'rpm -qa | grep kppp' (without the quotes) and see what you get.
If nothing is returned you definatley haven't got KPPP. To install it you have several options.
1. As root issue the command 'mcc'. Then goto Software Management->RpmDrakeHelpsYouInstallSoftware. In the search dialogue enter 'kppp' and it should install kppp and any dependancies it requires. Then go see if its been entered on the menu.
2. I think I am right in saying if you goto mcc (as above) and select 'Network and Internet->DrakConnect.....' and go through the wizard it will automatically install kppp and anyother software required. I think I would try this option first as you will be 'configuring' your connection at the same time as 'installing' it.
As for uname do 'ls /bin', is it there? It should be. If not do.....
'slocate -u'
and then
cd /
and then
'slocate *uname*'

See how you get on, Diesel_Oil.
