Moblin Package manager problem
 
1 Attachment(s)
I have this problem with Moblin v2

I connect internet through a usb modem. My internet connection got no trouble with linux, it works with all dstros perfectly(I dial with wvdial, gnome-ppp) but now with Moblin, all the apps (firefox, the inbuilt browser, im-client etc,.) are working properly (although I had to update the resolv.conf manually) except the application manager (gpkg-application)

I get the software list, I can refresh the list but cannot install. When I try to install something i get this:

Any ideas ?

The error message is virtually certain to be correct -- when you run the program, you don't have an Internet connection.

BTW why do you have to update /etc/resolv.conf manually? Isn't the dial-up process filling in this information automatically? And if not, why not? Are you sure the /etc/resolv.conf entries are correct, both as to format and content?

I run the package manager after connecting the internet, as I said any internet things can be done except this

/etc/resolv.conf doesn't update automatically, I don't know exactly why, but it should be because Moblin is still beta; and everytime you reboot it'll clear up the /etc/resolv.conf

Also, the Moblin repos don't have wvdial; being a derivative of fedora, I use wvdial from fedora11 repo and it works perfectly
