Maybe Fedora is getting back at me for not liking it but I installed
FC3, on a system with and Lucent winmodem(supported by the ltmodem
driver). I installed an ltmodem rpm that I found on the internet,
which works - kinda. I have to manually add the gateway (route add
default gw ....), and the device files in /dev disappear after reboot.
In the past I've used mdk, with uses devfs, and SuSE, which supports
as a default install option. It seems that Fedora deletes and replaces
the nodes in /dev everytime the system is shutdown and restarted.
Besides running mknod each time manually(or in the startup scripts, or
via cron), is there anyway to keep the file in question(ie
Also shouldn't kppp add the route itself automaticly? Any idea why I
have to do it manually?
Any suggestions appreciated.
