    Internet connection problem (Suse 9 Personal)


    I've only installed Suse 9.0 today and every things running well apart from I cannot get online. I use a 56k Win modem which Suse detects but as soon as I press connect I get an error message saying something about an exit error 3 and sometimes an exit error 7. Any suggestions?

    try following the SUSE links in the
    http://www.heby.de/ltmodem
    site and then I think it's a file called "ltmodem-kv_2.4.20_4GB-8.26a9-1.i386.rpm" that you need (don't worry about the i386 bit).

    So, first uninstall the file you've put in so far (
    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep 'modem'
    will tell you what it's called, then
    Code:
    rpm -e WHATEVER_IT'S_CALLED
    )

    Then instal the newly downloaded file
    Code:
    rpm -i ltmodem-kv_2.4.20_4GB-8.26a9-1.i386.rpm
    and, using the stuff in the tutorial to help you fault find, try it out. (the best thing I've found is the messages in the /var/log/messages log file. The 'tail' command should display the tail end of the log file -
    Code:
    tail /var/log/messages
    You may find you get "tainted" messages, don't worry if you do.

    Let me know how you get on.

    have fun
