    Internet problems after hdinstall (wvdial)

    I ran knoppix (3.4) off the live cd and had set up my net connection with wvdial and it works great.

    However, after installing to the harddrive via knx-hdinstall script... now I start the net using wvdial, and it connects per usual and the console outputs the same and assigns the connection a pid. It stays connected great, PPPstatus reports the connection working, sending a packet to keep it alive and recieving a response but when I attempt to use any internet based applications such as gaim or mozilla, nothing. It's as if it wasn't connected, although the connection is alive.

    It works great if I run it off the CD though.

    Anyone have any ideas? Is it possibly a configuartion I need to look into?

    Edit /etc/group and make sure you're in the dip and diallout groups.

    You might try pppconfig to set up your modem and diallup and pon (in an xterm) to connect, poff to disconnect.
