Question Connect Internet through mobile in OpenSuse 11.4


How can I connect my Nokia 5230 mobile to OpenSuse 11.4 for Internet? I have used Ubuntu, in which they have wvdial but OpenSuse 11.4 does not have wvdial in /etc folder. My phone is detected by OpenSuse but what to do next?

Different distros put things in different locations, at times. If you typed in "wvdial" it would tell you how to install it. Did you try that, or did you try to look this up on the openSUSE forums and/or Google?
Code:
sudo zypper install wvdial
Or you could go into YAST, and under "Network Devices", click "Modem", and configure it.

The problem is solved by myself. I have installed wvdial from the DVD and it works fine.
