formatting only hdb1 and kppp dialer dependencies


I have a question to ask when doing a reinstall and formatting only my hdb1 partician. It seems to have affected my kppp dialer, because apparently, the kppp dialer dependencies are saved in my home directory. Is there anyway to fix this without doing a complete reinstall?

I noticed it has also affected Kopete too, and even if I do an uninstall of kopete, and a reinstall, it still does not fix the problem.

Any solutions to the above 2 problems?

Well I just tried to uninstall KPPP and reinstalling it and it somehow brought back the old default settings and it wont work. I'd hate to do another reinstall, is there any other way to reconfigure Kppp dialer?



So I guess it would be my default settings because I tried to delete user settings and then re-apply then in new configuration and when I querry modem nothing ever happnens. I know I have tried with Kopete, as in reinstalling and uninstalling and nothing seemed to work as well.

the settings for each user are stored in the /home directory of the user and /root for root

if u have deleted the /home partiton or the user directory then ur settings are lost and u end up with default settings which u need configure again

Can you be a little more specific as to how you reconfigure the settings?

Yes Masand, I knew how to configure and delete settings, but any time I would try to use it I would still get wrong password error. I tried 3 different times and still got the error. I finally did a complete reinstall to settle my problems.

Massand,

Let me correct what I had stated. My issue(s) were two-fold. I had a problem using kopete (old settings would remain) and no matter what I did with the kppp dialer settings, delete/reconfigure settings, the dialer would just hang and never dial through.

I finally did a clean install and formatted both particians.

Yes massand, after I reinstalled and reformatted both hdb1 and hdb6, I was able to easily configure my kppp dialing properties. For some reason if you only comfigure hdb1 it keeps your old settings in your home directory.
