hi, i'm a newbie to slackware 9.0..
i connect to internet with a 56k dialup... i used to be connecting to the internet using kppp in kde, but now i've switched to fluxbox. so i think i should connect to the internet using pppsetup.
the modem actually dialing when i type ppp-go after filling in all the information ppp needs.
but then it stops there(after the dialing process ended)... it seems it can't logon(or whatever; i can;t tell) and disconnected seconds later....
i've triad to run pppsetup again, and i've made sure i 've filled in the right informations(username, pass). furthermore i did also try other authentication but only chap works(at least it can dial)..
could anybody tell mewhat actually has gone wrong?
any helps are appreciated...

Yeah, i went back to double check the configurations..
i checked the /var/log/messages i got this
May 28 12:29:23 slackware chat: CONNECT
May 28 12:29:23 slackware chat: -- got it
May 28 12:29:23 slackware pppd: Serial connection established.
May 28 12:29:23 slackware pppd: Using interface ppp0
May 28 12:29:23 slackware pppd: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/modem
May 28 12:29:23 slackware /etc/hotplug/net.agent: assuming ppp0 is already up
May 28 12:31:26 slackware pppd: Modem hangup
May 28 12:31:26 slackware pppd: Connection terminated.
May 28 12:31:27 slackware pppd: Exit.
and from syslog
May 28 12:17:36 slackware pppd: Connect script failed
May 28 12:21:01 slackware pppd: Connect script failed
May 28 12:21:49 slackware pppd: Connect script failed
May 28 12:25:13 slackware pppd: Connect script failed
May 28 12:29:54 slackware pppd: LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests
and one thing that i think was quite weird is that at the config summary files(etc/ppp/pppsetup.txt) generated by pppsetup, it said "
ATENTION: I couldn't find 'PPP' in the kernel or as a module.
You'll need 'PPP' in the kernel or as a module to make a PPP connection. "
Will this be the culprit? but i thought every modern distro should include the ppp and foremostly, i could connect to the internet in kde using kppp.....
sigh... sorry didn't help..... actually how to check the pppd?
i dun have any modem other than my 56k 3com us robotic modem....
i also have tried it at my other box running 8.1 still it's exactly the same as my new machine.........
i really dun wanna go back to kde coz i wanna try fluxbox......
is there any other approach to get online?
Something in your rc.hotplug is not referenced correctly. CD to /etc/rc.d and type "./rc.hotplug status" and paste the results here. Also try leaving the modem unplugged (it is external right?) while booting and then after booting plug it in and run "./rc.hotplug restart" . See if that makes a difference.
Why not use Kppp in Fluxbox? Flux is only a window manager (so far ), while KDE is, well, the K Desktop Environment, which means it's a suite of apps too. So just use KDE apps in Flux. You already have the KDE/Qt3 libraries installed
