2 problems...

Just installed Corel Linux, i'm still getting into it but need a bit of help...

1) cant connect to the internet... modem seems to work fine, it dials up, tries to connect to the network, then an error pops up saying 'pppd daemon died unexpectadely' (log file not working either if any help)

2) audio just doesn't work, i try and play a sound file, MP3, whatever, and it says audio not configured properly (i have an AWE 64).

Any help out there?

I have an answer to your ppp problem. It took me all day one day to fix the problem myself. When I figured it out I felt fairly silly.

Go to the following directory.

/etc/ppp

and open the file options in your text editor.

Find the word "auth"

It is a few "paragraphs" down.

Comment it out by putting a # in front of it like this.

#auth

restart your machine and your modem should now connect.

hope this helps you out.
