Ubuntu 9.10 adding Dial-up manually

Asked by sdrisk8262

I have been reading the Ubuntu documentation and either I find older versions that don't apply or a single package to download and install getting dependencies errors. So I go back and download the additional packages needed only to find more dependencies needed. errr My Linux computer can not get online and I cant network it to my windows PC that only has dial-up. So far I have had to DL gnome.ppp, WvDial, Libuniconf4.4, Libxplc0.3.13. Probably a few more if take the time to look. The only good news is that I have the correct modem driver installed for my Conexant HSF modem from Linuxant.com.

My goal would be to find one package that has all the dependencies included in one COMPLETE PACKAGE.

Hi sdrisk8262 , just for reference and till a single 'dial-up addon' package appears:

To get wvdial on Ubuntu 9.04 (i386) we need the following 5 packages to be installed in below order:
1. http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/i386/libxplc0.3.13/download
2. http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/i386/libwvstreams4.4-base/download
3. http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/i386/libwvstreams4.4-extras/download
4. http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/i386/libuniconf4.4/download
5. http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/i386/wvdial/download

To get wvdial on Ubuntu 9.10 (i386) we need the following 4 packages to be installed in below order:
1. http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/i386/libwvstreams4.6-base/download
2. http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/i386/libwvstreams4.6-extras/download
3. http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/i386/libuniconf4.6/download
4. http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/i386/wvdial/download

'Offline' installation can be done by copying these packages to Desktop and then double clicking one by one (install #1, then #2, ...)

(above are from http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=7245790&postcount=8)

Other more difficult way is to learn and use pppconfig (included into 9.04 and 9.10).

Hi dennykvg, it is the same as all are 32bit architecture.
In case you need 64bit you can search starting from: http://packages.ubuntu.com/
where you can find a search function.

Can you help with this problem?
