wvdialconf does not generate the wvdial.conf file. Anyone know why? Puppy


Hello:

Can anyone tell me why when I execute '# wvdialconf' in Puppy 4.3.1 no 'wvdial.conf' file is generated in /etc, or, anywhere else?

I did a 'find / -name wvdial*.*' and could not find it.


/usr/share/doc/wvdial/wvdialconf.txt
/usr/share/doc/wvdial/wvdial.txt
/usr/share/doc/wvdial/wvdial.conf.txt
/root/.packages/wvdial-1.53-3.files
/initrd/pup_ro1/root/.packages/wvdial-1.53-3.files
/initrd/pup_ro1/usr/share/doc/wvdial/wvdialconf.txt
/initrd/pup_ro1/usr/share/doc/wvdial/wvdial.txt
/initrd/pup_ro1/usr/share/doc/wvdial/wvdial.conf.txt
/initrd/pup_ro2/usr/share/doc/wvdial/wvdial.conf.txt
/initrd/pup_ro2/usr/share/doc/wvdial/wvdial.txt
/initrd/pup_ro2/usr/share/doc/wvdial/wvdialconf.txt
/initrd/pup_rw/usr/share/doc/wvdial/wvdialconf.txt
/initrd/pup_rw/usr/share/doc/wvdial/wvdial.txt
/initrd/pup_rw/usr/share/doc/wvdial/wvdial.conf.txt
/initrd/pup_rw/root/.packages/wvdial-1.53-3.files

Any help would be appreciated.

If you run it as root, it probably will be inside the /root folder, maybe hidden or in a hidden folder.
