I configured to use SLIP with my isp (they use slip I know it sucks) I configured all of the files end everything, but when I use dip to dial I get an error here is my session

>dip -v SLIP.DIP
localhost.localdomain name lookup failure

Why does it do that, it doesn't even dial? can anybody help?

Dip is not compiled correctly. The author didn't use the LSM (Linux Software Map), so dip is expecting to find a program somewhere other than where it actually is. It probably can't find sliplogin, which should be in /usr/sbin. Try going through the source, making sure that it knows where sliplogin is, and either recompile, or create a symlink from sliplogin to wherever dip thinks it is.
