wvdial.tcel
« on: December 25, 2008, 09:13:48 PM »
Here is wvdial.tcel.  For those who have dialup ( qb4, others :-) ), please help test it thoroughly.

NOTE:  This package will require testing and further development as it is non-functional as it is. 

Code: [Select]
Title:          wvdial.tcel
Description:    wvdial-1.60 and wvstreams-4.5.1 for dialup users. (TESTING)
Version:        1.60
Author:          Dave Coombs and Avery Pennarun of Worldvisions Computer Technology, Inc.
Original-site:  http://open.nit.ca/wiki/index.php?page=WvDial

-----==[  Color = red     Filesize:   2.3MB  ]==-----
Extension by:   Jason W
Comments:       This is wvdial and the related wvstreams package to support
dialup connections.  Config file is /etc/wvdial.conf though package was
                           built for /usr/local.

I see no dep for pppd - does wvdial function standalone?
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

No, and I will take care of that tonight when I get home as I mentioned in the other thread.

This extension has been removed as it does not function and will require rebuilding and further development and testing.

Sorry to dig this topic up but any chance of seeing this put back in and/or explaining what the problems were with it being removed in the first place?

Thanks

Here is info on how you can connect to the internet using a dial up modem.

Many people see what is. Some people see what can be, and make a difference.

To be honest I don't remember exactly what the issue was beyond not connecting.  I haven't used dialup in years, so it would not be a good investment of my time to revisit it or maintain the package even if it worked well.  And I always used pppsetup or gtkdial back then anyway. 

Pehaps someone familiar with wvdial could make an extension.
