I have installed VL Standard 5.8 GOLD on my box.
I use a PPoE connection for my broadband internet using SmartAX MT882 modem and via ethernet. In Arch Linux on the same machine, I could configure using pppoe-setup and connect by /etc/rc.d/adsl start. In Ubuntu/Debian its even easier using pppoeconf and pon dsl-provider.
Here in VL, I use ppoe-setup to configure my account, but cannot connect using pppoe-start. I'v also tried /etc/rc.d/inet1 start, but still no connection. (pinging google.com gives 'unknown host' after some time).
Any help on how to connect will be greatly appreciated. I'l supply any further info regarding my setup, etc as required!
I had installed temporarily Zenwalk 4.4.1 on the same machine for testing, and there too I couldn't set up net. So, is this a problem typical of Slackware derivatives???
