Well, top of the morning to ya all. I don't want to dribble on, but in all probability, I"m going to. I have modem issuses and need instruction on the, how for's and what to's etc. I have virtually NO experience in linux so, I need step by step instructions for a dummy. I use the GUI, and I don't know very much about the command line. So if you bare with me, I'll try to make it as straight forward as I can.
Dual boot Windows XP and Mandrake 9.1
External Dynalinnk 56K e-modem 1456VQE-C
Problem: I'm getting a error message in trying to set up the modem to connect to the web.
I'm using KDE. The error reads Error - KPPP, The pppd daeman died unexpectedly,exist status :16
The KPPP Log reads
April ....... localhost pppd  pppd 2.4.1 started by root, uid 0
" " " using interface ppp o
" " " connect ppp o - /dev/tts/o
" " " Hangup (sighup)
" " " modem hangup
" " " connection terminated
" " " exit
How I came to this erroe message. I went to the control centre - Network & Internet. From there I press connect, up comes Kppp dialogue box, in set up, under divices I have it on /dev/ttySO (because this is where the Wizard tells me the modem is detected). Ummmmm then try connecting and then get the above message.
Ahhhh, errrr, that's it really, I think?.
Not sure what else to say at this point soooo, Yeah, Help, Please.
