pppd dying...carriage return!?!??
I'm a real newbie at Linux, but I seem to be getting the hang of it...I've been trying to get online in Linux for about a week now, and been consistently unsucessful.
Linux recognizes my modem, a USR Sportster v.90....no NOT a winmodem. It dials out, on correct port, etc... after entering my ISP info, and dialing, it connects then gives me the dreaded "ppp daemon died unexpectedly" error. ("exit code 19", if it helps.)
I have seen too many threads on this, and none of which have helped me. I tried calling my ISP (haha...), but I eventually just got onto the IRC on my ISPs website, and a guy told me "unofficially" that i needed a carriage return. Where should i put it, and how? Is this truly the problem?
Sometimes I can connect under KPPP, but I cant access the internet...only a phone connection. I can never connect under wvdial. I'm running RH 7.0, if that helps. How do I add this carriage return, or is this the problem at all?
Thanx so much!
