Feliz Año Nuevo! Although I cannot give you much useful advice on how to configure wvdialconf
, I wanted to let you know that package is
in the Pardus 2009 repositories. I searched for it just now and found it:wvdial
I am using the Dutch repositories at ftp.surfnet.nl
, rather than the default Turkish repos. For more info, please see the following thread:http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=2919.0
"Slow official repos?
I had time for some more searching, and although I am not 100% certain, I think that when you run wvdial
for the first time, you can make it create the wvdial.conf
file you need. (The directions quoted below refer to the antiX MEPIS distribution, but I would guess that the basics of this are very similar from one distro to another):http://reddevil62-techhead.blogspot.com/2008_08_03_archive.html

WvDial sacrifices some of the flexibility of programs like 'chat' in order to make your dialup configuration easier.
When you install this package, your modem will be detected automatically and you only need to specify three simple parameters: the phone number, username, and password.
Clever old WvDial knows enough to dial with most modems and log in to most servers without any other help.
To get things going, once you have installed WvDial, launch a terminal and, as root, enter:
This command makes WvDial detect your modem and creates a default WvDial .conf file, which is where we will enter our three simple parameters.
The configuration file is written to /etc/wvdial.conf and you edit it by, again as root, launching it in your favourite text editor (I used Leafpad because I prefer graphical editors):
leafpad /etc/wvdial.conf . . . [etc.]

"can't connect internet ; kppp crashing when try to set up account & password
(Her reply is # 4)
I am now using a new modem and did a reinstall of Pardus 2008.1 and all is well, as the default fields were there, and I basically used the default settings. My ISP requires PAP authentication, so I added PAP to the kppp selection of pap/chap. My modem uses a usb cable and I'd already read up about this particular modem, that it uses device: ttyACM0. My previous modems used ttyUSB0 since they used a converter cable. Lock file is ticked. I set modem speed to 57600, otherwise I had problems getting connected if I used anything higher.
In case your modem commands field is blank, here are the defaults:
50, ATZ, Post init: 50, 70, OK, ATX3, ATDT, CONNECT, BUSY, NO CARRIER, NO DIALTONE, +++ATM, OK, ATA, RING CONNECT DIGITAL LINE DETECTED, +++, OK, 50, M0L0, M1L1, MLL3
Le deseo buena suerte en cuanto a la resolución de su problema. Que le vaya bien,
