PengAOL


Hi,

I am using RedHat Linux 9 and I'm stuck with AOL, so I need to use PengAOL. I have successfully installed the program. When I type in "pengaol -User [myusername] [mypassword]", I hear the modem dialing. I then get the following on my screen...

Connection to access provider
Connection speed: 57600

It just hangs there. Eventually it drops the connection (I listened on the phone). Does anyone have any ideas? I tried using the GUI to connect and basically got to the same point. I don't like using the GUI because the screen looks distorted (I can't see the whole thing for some reason, and when I resize it, it just goes back).

I never could get pengaol to work.... When I was useing it.. it would connect with no problem.... then after you would try to access anything you would get dropped. a ping to aol.com after connecting would terminate the connection.

Luckily, DSL became available in my area...

I would honestly suggest finding an alternative dial-up provider Try your phone company.

PengAOL/Penggy Help

Hi,

The one thing that is keeping me from going 100% to linux is AOL. I need to get PengAOL or Penggy to work. When I try to use PengAOL it looks like I'm connected (see my post above) but I'm not. When I try to install penggy I get an error message, that it needs the files libguile.so.6 and libqthreads.so.0. These are files for the program guile. I have a newer version of guile with newer files, but it does not see that. I could uninstall the new version of guile and install an older version, but I don't know how. Please help.

Ryan
