General :: 64 Bit System Does Not Have A Dialup Option?

Oct 10, 2010

I have a 64 bit system on which I am trying to install Linux. I installed Ubuntu but it does not have a dialup option and since I live in a rural area I only have access to dialup at this time.

Does anyone know of a 64 bit operating system which contains dialup capability? I have tried reading about the various distros but have been unable to find any which indicate they work with dialup.

Debian Installation :: Dialup Not Supported

Jul 9, 2015

My home connection is dialup via an 8-bit ISA modem. I plan to use the old box with the modem in it as a gateway and do my actual work on this laptop. Connection away from home is not so easy to get in my area.

SuSE 6.1 has no problem operating the modem, so the hardware works. SuSE 6.1 can't seem to make anything else work though. How can I configure Debian to see and operate this modem?

SuSE sees the modem on /dev/ttyS1. The same chat script does nothing on jessie. I'm guessing that jessie is just not seeing ISA.

I'm able to install packages onto the box via a usb drive but that's only on the days when the local coffee shop's wi-fi actually works, which is rare.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 - Internet Dialup With Winmodem

Jan 17, 2010

I am new to Ubuntu and Linux. I think that I like Ubuntu, but I don't think it likes me! I can't get onto the internet with my "old fashioned" dialup that is preinstalled in my Dell Latitude. In fact I can't find any reference to a dialup modem in Ubuntu 9.10. Have done some research and it appears that my winmodem will not work with linux, but there maybe some complex way around this problem. Can it be done? I have a Conexant HDA D110 MDC V.92 modem.

Fedora Networking :: F12 Dialup Modem Not Working / Fix It?

Nov 26, 2009

I have F9, F10, F11 and F12 installed along with WinXP on my desktop PC. I connect to the internet thru 56K dialup modem (USR-5610B). The earlier versions of Fedora, F9, F10 and F11, all can connect via dialup modem.

My F12 installation is augmented with the following rpms - kudzu-, libwvstreams-4.6-5.fc12.i686 and wvdial-1.60.10.fc12.i686 (and the rpm for USR-5610B modem)

Network Configuration GUI shows ppp0 (Modem) in the Common Active Profile

However, ppp0 does NOT show up in the Network Device Control GUI, AND ACTIVATE and DEACTIVATE buttons are GREYED-OUT.

Networking :: Pages Not Loading Randomly On Dialup

Jan 31, 2011

I am currently using Open SuSE 11.3 and connect to the internet through a fixed wireless terminal (CDMA Wireless modem), Huawei ETS-1201 with BSNL connection. The problem is that, after dialling and connecting to the internet, some pages dont load randomly. Sometimes, Google loads quite fine, but other times, it is just stuck and I have to reload the page several times. When I connect through Windows, I have no such problem. I have used Fedora, Ubuntu and Sabayon but the same problem exists. I don't want to return to Windows but is frustrated with my web experience on linux.

Ubuntu Networking :: 9.10 Where's Dialup Modem On Thinkpad X60s?

Jan 13, 2010

Ubuntu 9.10: where's my dialup modem on my thinkpad X60s?

I'm trying to use "GNOME PPP" to connect by dialup, and it complains that it can't find my builtin modem. But XP can, and that's what I'm using at this moment. XP says the modem is on COM3.

I tried using several "/dev/tty*" entries in the GNOME-PPP setup, but none of the ones I tried worked. The GNOME-PPP default is "/dev/modem", but none such is mounted.

Is there some way I can find out where the modem is mounted, if it is? Or else, how can I mount the modem properly and test it?

Fedora Installation :: Get System Restore Option For XP After Install

Jan 31, 2009

probably did something stupid.. just haven't figured out what yet.. hope someone can point me in the right direction. daughters computer broke, maybe virus, so i did clean reinstall of xp. decided to give her a couple of linux distros, thinking maybe they are safer for when she is surfing..

Used gparted to repartition hd:

Partition table entries are not in disk order

Installed Ubuntu 8.04. was then able to boot into either ubuntu or xp. next installed fedora 10. new menu.lst did not show ubuntu, only fedora and xp. had some lockups in fedora, and had to pull plug to reboot 2 or 3 times. replaced power supply. added ubuntu into menu.lst. boots into fedora and ubuntu fine. tried to boot xp, and get "Preparing System Recovery Option", then PC Angel appears, and it wants me to use the system restore option for xp.

Is there something i can do to recover xp without having to wipe the hd and reinstall xp, then reinstall ubuntu and fedora (and if i do all that, how can i be sure i don't end up with the same problem?

Fedora :: Synchronize System Clock Before Starting Option?

Apr 24, 2009

I want to set up a web server, and I want to set up NTP so to always keep the clock in sync. I have installed a very basic system (No GUI or X components), to keep it slim and thereby a little less prone to security problems. However, does anybody know what the Synchronize system clock before starting option in system-config-date actually does in terms of changing config files or permissions? I'd like to know so I can do it manually via the commandline.

Fedora :: Option For Multi-core Booting In System?

Sep 14, 2009

I've tried searching the forums / google and haven't been able to come up with anything... in Debian-based distros there's an option that can be set to allow boot concurrency so that multiple processor cores can be used for the boot process. Windows also has an option similar to this to specify how many processor cores to use for boot.

Is there an option for multi-core booting in Fedora?

Ubuntu Installation :: Full System On USB Stick With Installer Option

Jul 20, 2010

I would like to make a bootable Ubuntu system on a USB stick from a full install, so I can update the packages/kernel etc, and I would also like to have the ability to Install ubuntu from the USB stick onto other computers. What package allows you to run the installer that is found on the LiveCD?

Also, is it possible to have a Ubuntu installer that uses updated packages rather than the LiveCD so they are current when installed rather than the release packages to save on the download/updating time?

Ubuntu :: System Would Use Futura's Heavy Weight Option Instead Of Bold

Feb 27, 2011

I use the Futura font as my application/desktop/titlebars font, and I think it looks beautiful. However, its bold version is much too dark for my liking and it really spoils the look of my desktop when it's used in applications (Nautilus' sidebar and Libre Office's menubar are the main offenders), and what I would much rather is if the system would use Futura's heavy weight option instead of bold, but after searching gconf and for configuration files I can't work out where or how I would do this.

Ubuntu Networking :: Dialup Modem Computer As Internet Sharing Gateway To Wireless Access?

Mar 4, 2011

I am wanting a computer with an external dialup modem (ppp0 modem through a com port /dev/ttys1) to act as a gateway to the internet, forwarding internet traffic through ethernet (eth0 is set to static to a router (the router is where it will be broadcast to other wireless computers like my laptop ( I've had this setup until recently when the gateway computer (the one with the modem) died. Now I'm replacing that machine with another box and an install of Ubuntu 10.10 but so far things aren't working for me.

Success so far:I have dialup access working on the new box. Took me a while to work out the configuration for getting dialup working, though the IP address is Dynamic (or it won't stay connected), "Check carrier line" is off, and "Ignore Terminal Strings (stupid mode)" is on in order to successfully connect and stay connected to my ISP. I also had to make my normal (non-root) user "lancer" a member of the "pid" group (the reboot) in order to use gnome-ppp as non-root. The laptop ( is successfully connecting to the router ( as I can see the router configuration page when I type into the laptop's web browser. This setup is unchanged from how I had it before when this was previously working and I don't want to change how the router itself is set up. What I want is to know what to fix in the new box in order to get it connected to the router (through ethernet) and bridging the internet through.

My problem is that whenever I plug in the eth0 from the gateway ( to the router (, Ubuntu's automatic plug-me-in network detection kicks in and I find my dialup no longer working through some kind of IP conflict (at least that's what I think it is). Maybe I don't have the "gateway" correctly assigned? (in the gateway computer for the ethernet connection, I had it pointing to itself as I don't know what to put for "gateway IP" as that is automatic So, just to check my connection, here I am pinging google (from the gateway computer which has the dialup modem) once a dialup connection has been made.

lancer@lancer-desktop:~$ ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_req=1 ttl=55 time=179 ms
64 bytes from icmp_req=2 ttl=55 time=176 ms
64 bytes from icmp_req=3 ttl=55 time=158 ms


What do I need to do in order to make Ubuntu of my gateway computer stay connected to my dialup but also simultaneously share an ethernet LAN to my wireless router and feed traffic to the other computers from there? I have googled this but some of the most promising instruction (e.g. call for packages like dnsmasq or ipmasq which seem defunct now in Ubuntu 10.10. Other pages seem to suggest dual-networks "can't be done" in Ubuntu [URL].. (what!?! I had it before my other gateway died)
