    Error code 8 while tring to set up a modem in FC2


    system
    pent 150
    ram 196
    10 gig H/D
    trio s3 64
    FC2

    When trying to set up and activating a modem under FC2 (only gives this error in Gnome works fine in KDE)
    I get the following error message

    failed to activate myconnection error 8

    The modem is not a winmodem and is detected by the os
    I have searched google and found some related questions on the same subject but no fixes

    I have made KDE the default desktop and Window Manager for all users by editing /etc/sysconfig/desktop
    but that does not make the problem go away I only see this as work round

    If I recall correctly, error 8 is what I get when I try to connect when the line is already in use. But you probably knew that already.
    /IMHO
    //got nothin'
    ///this use to look better
