Question HSF modem problems


I have been trying to get my HSF winmodem working under CRUX linux 1.1. I successfully used it in Slackware, but I've recently switched to CRUX. The driver compiled and installed fine, and the modem responds to wvdial (I also tried pppsetup and had the same problem). It dials my ISP (I do *70 to disable call waiting), does the authentication, then connects, but as soon as pppd takes control the connection dies. Here is what wvdial prints out:

...
PPP negotiation detected
Starting pppd at <date>
pid of pppd: 216
Disconnecting at <date>
The PPP daemon has died: Fatal pppd error (exit code=1)

Any help would be appreciated.

Try passing the debug arguement to pppd. Can you use Kppp instead of wvdial?

I haven't installed X, and I'm not sure if I will. The Intel 845 drivers are pretty buggy.

Oh, and I think that pppsetup might have used debug without it working.

Ah, no X.

Tried man pppd to see what exit code 1 means?

I know what it means, but I don't know how to fix it. Debug just says that when it finally connects, pppd quits. I don't claim to be a guru or anything, but I've used linux for a while.
