On Fedora Core 5, I needed to set up three files:
- /etc/resolv.conf # use known-good nameservers
pppd call 1xevdoas root. Within a few seconds, you should see a valid IP address when you type
ifconfig ppp0and you're online. It's the coolest thing. Considerably slower than the wireless service at Starbucks or Panera but it's a lot better than no connectivity at all.
