i booted with .6 arch cd and installed the base install + wvdial ppp etc and try to get online with wvdial it dials and everything but then segfaults and quits.
i cannot install gnome if i cannot connect to the internet!
i have loaded the module ppp_generic as suggested and have set a correct ppp options file, i am typing this on another linux distro connected to the internet with wvdial so i know its not my hardware problem
i have found some posts on these forums with same problems but havnt found a solution that worked, can someone help please?
this was a freak problem,
i downloaded latest wvdial and wvstreams sources and compiled them using ABS against my version of glibc (thanks to friendly people on the IRC channel) and installed those, no more segfaults and i was able to get online. Just posting this so if anyone else has this problem they can fix it:)
just download PKGBUILD files from arch cvs for wvdial and wvstreams download source of each and copy to seperate dir's with the respective PKGBUILD files. then type makepkg , once compiled install using pacman
