Description Marc 2008-06-19 04:34:40 EDT
Description of problem:

Open KPPP to set-up a modem connection via Gnome desktop.  KPPP window opens,
but freezes on manual set-up when the new account is selected.  However, if you
select the modem tab first, you can enter modem settings and then the new
account settings can be entered, but this isn't the way it normally works.  Even
when settings are eventually entered into KPPP as described above, the modem
won't connect with KPPP (I think the error code 16 comes up, but will need to

Entering settings and connecting to the ISP do work with System-Config-Network
via Gnome, though.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Didn't work with the original component when F9 came out, and doesn't work with
the current update (10 June 2008): kdenetwork-4.0.5-3.fc9.i386.rpm  

How reproducible:

Every time, even when a reboot is tried.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open KPPP and try to enter modem account and set-up settings.
2. KPPP freezes when the new account manual set-up is selected.
3. Managed to enter settings if the modem settings are entered first, then the
new account settings, but modem won't connect.
Actual results:

Not able to connect with KPPP even when settings are eventually able to be entered.

Expected results:

Expect to be able to enter settings, and connect to ISP.

Additional info:

System-Config-Network works and the modem connects.

Seems like Kubuntu has a solution - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kdenetwork/+bug/278408/comments/9
