I finally got it working. I looked over most all of the
and didn't really see anything, as my ACM0 modem is detected at boot ( I hit "esc" during boot to see the terminal outputs). I had a look in /dev/ppp and there was no node for ppp. So, obviously it was missing. But, when I tried the kppp error suggestion of "You need to create the /dev/ppp device node by executing the following command as root...the same output I found in var/log/daemon.log :Apr 2 08:52:21 me-pardus pppd: pppd is unable to open the /dev/ppp device. You need to create the /dev/ppp device node by executing the following command as root: ^Imknod /dev/ppp c 108 0
Well, when I tried this yesterday my syntax was wrong as I thought the first letter was an l "el". Then today I tried this again but got the same response, with the correct syntax as listed above, a captital I "eye"
and got the same "/dev/ppp c 108 0: substitution failed". Harummpff!
So I had a look at this file
/dev/stderr (whatever this file is?)
and towards bottom it said:
Opener: received OpenDevice
Opener: received ExecPPPDaemon
In parent: pppd pid 1664
Couldn't find interface ppp0: No such device
Kernel supports ppp alright.
pppd: pppd is unable to open the /dev/ppp device.
You need to create the /dev/ppp device node by
executing the following command as root:
mknod /dev/ppp c 108 0
opened up terminal as super user and entered root password, entered the command without the ^ and the l or the I in front of it as shown above, and yeehaw, I got my internet connection back.
I now need to write a bug report for this.
Thanks again, and glad to be able to surf using pardus and not mint, as I don't care for FF browser .
