Re: Stuttering sound on Linux Mint 18 Sarah 64-bit (MATE)

Is there a difference when disabling WLAN and using LAN ? LinuxMint 18 definitely has a quite unfriendly problem with video streaming when using dedicated WLAN-HW - which LinuxMint 17 does not have at all! This can be stated at least when older WLAN-HW is used, i.e. Lenovo Thinkpad T60 (Mate 32-bit)...

Re: LM13 and DialUp Modem 'no data traffic' [SOLVED]

Hi Gene, when I did set up dial-up stuff last time I have used Ubuntu 7.10 I think. Ubuntu had a how to do page for that if I remember right, but I remember I also had this kind of problem. Just 3 things about what I have learned so far - or how I see the relationship: 1. Any user is not allowed to ...

Re: Can't set up wvdial or dialup connection

My list of what can be checked: 1. Does the application Gnome-PPP start up (without activating anything further - needs to be installed first) ? 2. Can Gnome-PPP successfully test your POTS dial-up modem (Setup -> Detect -> some modem LEDs are flickering during the test) ? 3. Does Gnome-PPP connect ...

Re: Can't set up wvdial or dialup connection

Once you have another dial-up active (ping to an IP address is ok, but DNS is still missing) then you can find out the returned connection relevant DNS IP addresses (related to usepeerdns - listed by connection time) via grep 'DNS address' /var/log/syslog peter@... ~ $ grep 'DNS address' /var/log/sy...

Re: Can't set up wvdial or dialup connection

How it should work with DNS entries according to my understanding: /etc/ppp/ip-up.d: should adapt the DNS entries in case the ppp dial-up was successful = add additonal or replace DNS entries into "/etc/resolv.conf". /etc/ppp/ip-down.d: should change back "/etc/resolv.conf" to the original settings ...

Re: Can't set up wvdial or dialup connection

Since "/etc/ppp/resolv.conf" is filled - and may be used, but "/etc/resolv.conf" is necessary :
I would like to link "/etc/resolv.conf" -> to "/etc/ppp/resolv.conf" - but what would be the pros and cons ?

Re: Can't set up wvdial or dialup connection

An analogue dial-up modem does connect via Gnome-PPP in LinuxMint (after having set "sudo adduser $USER dialout" [!]), but the necessary DNS stuff is not done automatically any more! In Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS the Gnome-PPP previously had a tab in the config settings for covering also DNS automatically, ...
