1 re wvdial with Build-ix86-1.0-rc6-r12.iso.
2 While proceeding through the instructions "Gentoo Linux 1.0_rc6 'from
3 source' (build) CD Installation I included wvdial as follows:
4 #chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
5 #env-update
6 #source /etc/profile
7 (config network as per instructions if required)
8 (cp the following files from the gentoo-i686-excl-bin-1.0_rc5 CD)
9 #cd /
10 #tar -xvjpf /tmp/wget-1.7.tbz2
11 #tar -xvjpf /tmp/ppp-2.4.1-r1.tbz2
12 #tar -xvjpf /tmp/wvdial-1.41-r3.tbz2
13 #ldd /usr/bin/wvdial (cannot find
14 #tar -xvjpf /tmp/gcc-2.95.3-r1.tbz2 (to obtain above library)
15 #ln -s gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/2.95.3/
16 (borrowed conf files from earlier linux system:
17 options,pap-secrets,host.conf,hostname,hosts,wgetrc,wvdial.conf,modules and
18 adjusted where necessary)
19 #mknod /dev/ppp c 108 0
20 #chmod 600 /dev/ppp
21 #touch /var/log/ppp.log
22 #chmod g+w /etc/ppp
23 #chmod u+s /usr/sbin/pppd
24 (ALT F2)
25 #wvdial
26 (ALT F1)
27 #emerge rsync
28 (continued with instructions)
30 I would appreciate any comments /improvements as I am a newie.
32 I would also like some help with:
33 I copied (cp -R) a whole root partition from a sda disk to a hda disk then
34 restructured the sda disk using fdisk then copied (cp -R) the partion back
35 to the sda disk. When I tried to reboot the system while the kernel was
36 being uncompressed, I got a message stating that the compression type of the
37 file had been changed. Any comments. Have I used the wrong method?
39 Many thanks,
