Smile WVDIAL :Command not found


I am Using Fedora 13 on My acer aspire laptop.
I want to connect to internet through my bluetooth Mobile(Airtel)
When I type wvdial at the command prompt, I recieve a message as "Command Not found" .
I even created a script with name wvdial.conf in /etc.
Please Provide me the steps to overcome this problem and the Method to connect to internet through Mobile Bluetooth.
Waiting for your reply
Thank You

The message is quite clear. The command isn't found...so either you don't have wvdial installed (in which case you need to install it via yum), or you don't have wvdial in your path. Find it with "local wvdial" or as root "find / -name wvdial". Then either modify your path to include that directory, or run it with the whole path name.

Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0

stupid mode = 1

Modem Type = USB Modem

Baud = 460800

New PPPD = yes

Modem = /dev/ttyACM0

ISDN = 0

Phone = *99#

Password = a

Username = a

also in /etc/resolv.conf----

nameserver 202.56.230.5

The wvdialconf program creates the /etc/wvdial.conf file. Which the OP said that they already HAD. And modifying your resolv.conf file manually is a bad idea...especially when you don't know if the OP will USE those name servers. The OP's original issue was that they couldn't FIND the wvdial command, which you told them to run.
