Gian Perrone swapped me an old laptop for some batteries, and I've installed
"Monkey Linux" on it. (Monkey Linux was the only mini-Linux distribution
that promised to work in 4MB of RAM.) It goes! Now I'd like to work out how
to get it to dial into Wave, my ISP. I have 'pppd' compiled and ready to go,
but I am stuck on setting it up.
The KDE dialer KPPP seems to just do the right thing, as does RedHat's RP3
and the Windows dialler. If I copy what they do with my PPP settings and
script it should work. But how do I find out what they are doing? I'd like
to look at what is going in and out of the modem while KPPP is logging in,
how can I do that?
I can write a CHAT script to get me through the login that I see when I dial
into Wave by hand, but I suspect that KPPP is avoiding that how login
business somehow, and the PPP setting I though would be right, from reading
PPP-HOWTO, do not work when I start a connection that way.
I would be using WvDial, but it's written in C++ (Monkey Linux only came with
a C compiler), and I haven't worked out how to cross-compile for Monkey
Linux, (Monkey Linux uses the older libc4 library, and the laptop has a 486SX
CPU) though I want to figure out how to do this eventually.
