    FTP/HTTP install. setting up ppp


    I've got the minimal version (150mb img) of Arch which I downloaded this morning. I burned the iso to a disk and it boots fine. I try setting up my USB wireless modem like I usually would on any other distro as such:

    modprobe usbserial vendor=0x1d09 product=0x4000
    pppconfig (Then I run through the setup and add my username, password and tel num)
    pon neotel (then I use pon to access my network named "neotel")
    ifconfig | grep ppp0 (to check whether the connection is working - which it usually is)
    Usually after the first step I can check whether the OS sees my device with ls /dev/ttyU* but not in this instance. The problem lies that it seems "pppconfig" doesn't exist on Archlinux???

    Please help me as I desperately want to install and use Archlinux!

    Thanks in advance.

    I would really recommend getting the full core installation CD and installing from that. Core includes the ppp package. You can set up your modem as follows: ArchWiki :: PPPoE Setup with pppd - ArchWiki

    From there you can install pppconfig from the AUR. AUR (en) - pppconfig
