[puredyne] PPoE issues

Hello all,

Firstly, I would like to thank the people responsible for such a great distro. I strongly believe that now I finally may be able to make the switch from Windows and enter the Linux domain…

Well, I’m writing here because after installing puredyne yesterday, I couldn’t make it connect to the internet. Though I’m a newbie on Linux, I’ve had tried some other distros: Ubuntu Studio 9.04, vanilla Ubuntu 9.04 and Fedora 12 with Planet CCRMA (a good one, by the way). On these distros, I could connect to the net quite easily. Although utilizing the same parameters on the aforementioned distributions, I simply cannot connect puredyne on the internet.

I’ve a DSL connection and I utilize the D-Link DSL 500B, a very common model in Brazil. Linux has the advantage (and the reputation) of being quite straightforward to make computers “see” networks and the like. On Fedora, all I had to do was: create a DSL entry, inform my login and password and check the “connect automatically” box. ‘Voilà’: I am online. I’ve obviously tried the same approach on puredyne, but no luck here. After many attempts, I tried the « pppoeconf » command and now I’m not able to edit or add new connections within “the icon besides the clock”  – sorry, I’m not in my machine now and I don’t remember the correct terminology, I should have written this yesterday, but it was late at night.

Another issue: I have another hard drive (NFTS partition, with Windows XP), how do I mount it? On the aforementioned distros, it was just a matter of selecting it from a drop down menu (alongside the ‘home’ folder, etc) and entering my password. I know that puredyne recognizes it, because I can see it through « gparted ».

Sorry for the long post, guys. It won’t be only one; I still have to make wineasio and VSTs work… J

Thanks for your time and thanks for puredyne.

Regards,

Rodrigo Chamusca

No idea about this, but I'm interested in the solution. (I might need to use pppoe later on.)

This one I know :)

# if you don't already have a mount directory
sudo mkdir /media/win

sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda# /media/win

(where /dev/sda# is the partition id that you see in gparted)

When you're done:

sudo umount /media/win

Re: [puredyne] PPoE issues

Hi, James

The mounting instructions worked like a charm. Thank you so much!

I want to point out a message that appears on every start up:

udevd [1086]: can not read 'etc/udev/rules.d/z80_user.rules'


The [1086] changes to other values. I've took note of [1064], [1084], ... Is this normal/expected?

Puredyne is really that great! I'm very excited about this distro. Ex: my Audiophile 2496 works perfectly (on Fedora 12 I simply could not get audio from it).

Regards,

Rodrigo Chamusca

Re: [puredyne] PPoE issues

Hi,

I figured it out: instead of creating a DSL entry (even thought my connection is ADSL and even thought this procedure worked for Fedora), I've opted for the 'eth0' connection and submitted a DNS address. Makes sense since I'm using a router. Works beautifully.

That said, it's even easier then... My bad, sorry!

Regards,

Rodrigo Chamusca

Hi -

Yes it's "normal", it's due to a slightly misbehaved package (i.e.
it's not our fault ;) - it causes no danger at all, though it would be
neater if we didn't get that message showing, since it can be
offputting...
