Debian Netinstall - foobar


Hi There!

well... after googling around for a while, i decided to pose this question on
this forum:

I Downloaded Debian SARGE Netinstall, burned it, isntalled and everything
went fine. but now, when i`m about to config my system, and apt-get wants
to fetch the packets, it can`t download them ( sure, i didn`t config any ppp
connection )

now my question to you guys : i launched a shell, and tried to setup a ppp
connection ( as i use adsl ) and some page told me, that there exists something
called "adsl-scrip", but i couldn`t find ;(

well, i`ve got lots of computer knowledge, unfortunately not under linux,
but i`m about to learn

would be nice, if so could help me, i tried my best so far.

so long, PulpFiction

(sorry if there are mistakes, i`m not a native-speaker.)

ok ... i managed to establish a pppoe connection to my isp ...

but something strange happened:

apt-get was connected (it tested the sources), but then the connection broke.
i don`t get it ... i killed the connection (poff) and then reconnected.
after this, it still couldn`t connect ( it said ERR bla problem resoving ftp.freenet.de )

... is it possible, that the pppoe connection kills itself after a period of time in that
it`s inactive ? how do i fix that?

H E L P ! ! !

greets, PulpFiction

Hmm...

Interesting problem. I don't have too much experience with messing with ppp, as debian always autodetects my connection, router, etc nicely. However, i've got some experience with debian installs not going smoothly- including buggering up my apt-sources. My only advice that i can offer is don't be afraid to reinstall- the more you do so, the more practice you can get.

I seem to remember a time when I'd done 5 reinstalls in 3 days, it got to the stage where i went to the cricket whilst it was going and left a note for my brother to press enter 15 times, wait 5 minutes and then press enter another 3 times. :P Worked too.

SOLVED

thx for your post ... finally so decided to answer ;D

but i just worked it out.

i`ve been reading a lot of forums these days, and finally got some practice with the BASH.
i launched a shell and simply ran "pppoeconf" ... that made it ;D

thx anyway
