After installing Mandrake 9.1, everything seems fine except i can't seem to locate KPPP dialer. In 9.0 i have no problem locating it in the regular menus under networking. Mandrake 9.1 seems to have moved it somewhere. Any ideas? Forgive the dumb question as i'm trying to kill off windows and migrate to Linux forever. Thanks !!!!
I think you're right about it being on the third cd. I seem to remember other people having the same problem in the mandrake forum. If you don't have the third CD you can always go to the easy urpmi site - http://plf.zarb.org/~nanardon/ - find a mirror near you under the "main" section and grab the kde-network, and kppp rpms and install those and you've got kppp.
See if there is a location as something like /usr/local/kde/bin/kppp or /usr/kde/bin or /opt/kde/bin (i'm not sure where mandrake puts it), if not, you should get the kde network package for the kde and mandrake version that you have, and just install it.
i just went thru the same thing. i ended up just downloading the rpm and installing it. you can find it at http://rpmfind.net/
just search for kppp and get your distros rpm.
you should be golden after that
I have the similar problem:
I type kppp at command prompt, it said "No such file or directory"
then I typed rpm -q kppp as suggested in some forum (searched thru Google), it returned a message that kppp package is not installed. I searched all 3 of my Mandrake 9.1 CDs for kppp, but its not to be found. How could it be missed in a distro? Is it in some other RPM? If so, pls let me know which one?
After a fresh install of 9.1, kppp did not show up in the menus. The fix for me was to go into the Mandrake Control Center > System > Menudrake. Then configure the System and User menus by clicking the icon "Menu Style" and selecting "All Applications" (I also select the "what to do?" menu for my husband and guest accounts. Save and exit.
After that, kppp shows up in the Networking > Remote Access section of the menu.
