  1. I used the default mcc Software Packages Installation and when it was running it showed the title: rpmdrake. Do you think i'd be okay using i586 on a Pentium 3? At the same level as i586 there's one called SRPMS which has one of the packages i installed. but i can't find SRPMS in google, what does it mean? I was looking for a Power Pack version of 'driva '07 but couldn't find one so i guess i'm stuck w/o a ref. manual.
  2. rp-pppoe-gui wasn't available on the "all packages, alphabetical" list.
  3. adsl(ppp0) IP DHCP No IP@ No mask DNS Servers: 199.43.182.6 & .5 DHCP dhclient Assign host name from DHCP @ DHCP host name: sysmpatico.ca DHCP timeout: 5 Get DNS servers from DHCP Options Start at boot Metric: 20 Info module name: Mac @: ppp0 Bus: Bus Loc: eth0 (Intel EtherExpress Pro/100) TCP No protocol No IP @ DNS Servers: as before DHCP blanked out Options Start at boot Metric: 10 Info Desc: Intel EtherExpress Pro/100 Media Class: NETWORK_ETHERNET Module Name: eepro100 Mac @: 00:02:55:8a:69:1d Bus/Loc: PCI/1 eth1 TCP see eth0 DHCP see eth0 Options see eth0 Info Vendor: Realtek Desc: RTL-8129 Media Class: NETWORK_ETHERNET Module Name: 8139too Mac @: 00:...:00 (changed) Bus/Loc: PCI/1 (why the same?) I added this with Fast Reply, the way i did in the first thread, in the hope that the format will be fixed.
  4. Why is this CODE block messed up? I tried editing it twice. Is was okay in my previous thread (Can't connect to the internet with DHCP). I don't know where the <BR>'s are coming from, there are no tabs in the code.
  5. Can't connect with PPPoE System: -- IBM Pentium 3 NetVista Type 6578-G9U -- SpeedStream 5200 ADSL modem Connected to one of two NICs using a good (on Windows) E'net cable. The modem is platform independant according to http://whirlpool.net.au/index.cfm?a=h_view&model_id=395 -- Ethernet cards: EtherExpress PRO(100) card is Linux compatible according to http://www.leenooks.com/Intel+EtherExpress+Pro+100%252fS Realtek RTL-8129 seems to be Linux compatible but I don't know about drivers. -- Mandriva 2006 on a Cheapbytes DVD I'm trying to connect to Bell Sympatico in Toronto but I'm a newbie to Linux and networking (I am a programmer tho). http://www.roaringpenguin.com/en/penguin/o...roducts/rpPppoe says I need PPPoE which they supply. daniewicz suggested seeing if it was available in my distro so I tried rpmdrake thru the Control Center (mcc) and got these packages: -- rp-pppoe-3.5-5mdk -- libpcrp0-0.9.1-1mdk -- ppp-2.4.3-9mdk But it doesn't even try to connect (no led activity on the NICs or the modem). Is there a program I should be running to set it up? I can't find any start up info on the roaring penguin site. Here's some ifconfig info the way I got it off the mcc Manage Connections dialog: <BR>adsl(ppp0)<BR> IP<BR> DHCP<BR> No IP@<BR> No mask<BR> DNS Servers: 199.43.182.6 & .5<BR> DHCP<BR> dhclient<BR> Assign host name from DHCP @<BR> DHCP host name: sysmpatico.ca<BR> DHCP timeout: 5<BR> Get DNS servers from DHCP<BR> Options<BR> Start at boot<BR> Metric: 20<BR> Info<BR> module name:<BR> Mac @: ppp0<BR> Bus:<BR> Bus Loc:<BR>eth0 (Intel EtherExpress Pro/100)<BR> TCP<BR> No protocol<BR> No IP @<BR> DNS Servers: as before<BR> DHCP<BR> blanked out<BR> Options<BR> Start at boot<BR> Metric: 10<BR> Info<BR> Desc: Intel EtherExpress Pro/100<BR> Media Class: NETWORK_ETHERNET<BR> Module Name: eepro100<BR> Mac @: 00:02:55:8a:69:1d<BR> Bus/Loc: PCI/1<BR>eth1<BR> TCP<BR> see eth0<BR> DHCP<BR> see eth0<BR> Options<BR> see eth0<BR> Info<BR> Vendor: Realtek<BR> Desc: RTL-8129<BR> Media Class: NETWORK_ETHERNET<BR> Module Name: 8139too<BR> Mac @: 00:...:00 (changed)<BR> Bus/Loc: PCI/1 (why the same?)<BR> Hope you can help, Peter
  6. Okay, I'll try that. Thanks for your help. Peter
  7. ifup pppd or ppp1 gives: sbin/ifup: config for pppd not found ifup ppp0 gives: pppd: unrecognized option 'No'
  8. I mean Linux start-up msg's which occur right after what used to be called the BIOS msg's. Yes, these are in /var/log/messages! Thank you, that will be a big help. The only possible deal breaker I see is: -- ifup-ppp: pppd started for ppp0 on at. -- pppd[5335]: unrecognized option 'No' -- ifup-ppp: pppd started for ppp0 on at. -- pppd[5282]: unrecognized option 'No' How can I get these msg's to windows? i.e. can I format a file on my flash drive that will be readable by XP?
  9. I found one problem -- the etc/hosts file had only one entry, localhost, and it was mapped to sympatico.ca! I fixed that and rebooted, but it still isn't trying. I don't see any BIOS errors for pppd, but i sure would like to slow that screen down! Here's some ifconfig info the way I got it off the mcc Manage Connections dialog: adsl(ppp0) IP DHCP No IP@ No mask DNS Servers: 199.43.182.6 & .5 DHCP dhclient Assign host name from DHCP @ DHCP host name: sysmpatico.ca DHCP timeout: 5 Get DNS servers from DHCP Options Start at boot Metric: 20 Info module name: Mac @: ppp0 Bus: Bus Loc: eth0 (Intel EtherExpress Pro/100) TCP No protocol No IP @ DNS Servers: as before DHCP blanked out Options Start at boot Metric: 10 Info Desc: Intel EtherExpress Pro/100 Media Class: NETWORK_ETHERNET Module Name: eepro100 Mac @: 00:02:55:8a:69:1d Bus/Loc: PCI/1 eth1 TCP see eth0 DHCP see eth0 Options see eth0 Info Vendor: Realtek Desc: RTL-8129 Media Class: NETWORK_ETHERNET Module Name: 8139too Mac @: 00:...:00 (changed) Bus/Loc: PCI/1 (why the same?)
  10. I found one problem -- the etc/hosts file had only one entry, localhost, and it was mapped to sympatico.ca! I fixed that, but it still isn't trying. Maybe i'll reboot.
  11. I did that but the Ethernet led on the modem went out and there was no activity on the NIC. In the BIOS msg's it said that pppd had an unrecognized option: "No". I figured i could get the same info from mcc, but it didn't seem to have any problems. Can i slow down the bios stuff? Should it matter?
  12. Thru the mcc package install (titled rpmdrake) I was given: -- rp-pppoe-3.5-5mdk -- libpcrp0-0.9.1-1mdk -- ppp-2.4.3-9mdk I created a new connection (ADSL & PPPoE) but it didn't really try (the top led flickered for less than a second when i created it and when i test the connection there's no activity at all). I suspect the NIC is bad. I can't try another slot as the rest are too small, but i do have another card.
  13. That seems to involved going on the internet and that's what I can't do right now. I have 2006 Mandriva, which according to the release notes means I should be using Smart http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Releases/Mandriva/2006/Notes But I don't have a clue as to how to follow the first instruction. In the Control Center it says that urpmi is a command line thing and i need the Reference Manual which I can't find and suspect it didn't come with my distro -- any ideas? So in the meantime I'm going on with the rpm which i'll download on XP and flash drive over.
  14. I think i did a full developer install so this should be there, right? Will i be able to download RP-PPPoE via Windows (and xfer it with a flash drive)? So should i get the following from http://rpms.mandrivaclub.com/rpms/mandriva...86/RByName.html and copy them to the hard drive and install them with the Control Center? rp-pppoe-3.8-1mdv2007.0 ADSL/PPPoE userspace driver linux/i586 rp-pppoe-debug-3.8-1mdv2007.0 Debug information for package rp-pppoe linux/i586 rp-pppoe-gui-3.8-1mdv2007.0 GUI front-end for rp-pppoe linux/i586 rp-pppoe-plugin-3.8-1mdv2007.0 PPP over ethernet kernel-mode plugin linux/i586
  15. It's all explained here (I guess): http://www.monitor.ca/monitor/issues/vol7iss6/lnxstuff.html
