Re: Installed kppp despite VoIP and played with [

Dear Philippe,

I have KDE 4.6.0 on my Computer from the very beginning, and - at least consciously - haven't upgraded it since then. E.g. the following is a part of /etc:

-rw-r--r--   1 root root       279 19. Feb 2011  kde3rc
drwxr-xr-x   4 root root      4096 17. Jan 2011  kde4
-rw-r--r--   1 root root       101 18. Apr 2011  kde4rc

(On 18.April 2011 I installed SUSE 11.4. on this computer.) There are all sorts of kde, kde3 or kde4 files around. E.g. my home directory contains .kde and .kde4, there are some configuration files in .kde/share/config, but most - like kppprc - sit in .kde4/share/config. This is, how things were installed by SUSE.

I removed kppp with YAST and reinstalled it again, I did

# cp -R /home/junker/.kde .kde/
# chown -R root:root .kde/

but still "The modem doesn't answer" if I do $kppp as root.

Wolfgang,

I can see you updgraded your openSUSE. The files are now expected to reside in $HOME/.kde4 and not $HOME/.kde

Dear Wolfgang,

Your latest kppp run looks for /etc/kde4rc which it successfully finds.
Can you remove and then reinstall kppp ? Something looks weird.

Also from a root account would you be so kind as to:
# cp -R /home/junker/.kde .kde/
# chown -R root:root .kde/

Finally you have this environment varaiable set when kppp starts:
QT_PLUGIN_PATH=/home/junker/.kde"

Can you check your env ? On my side, I have:

Dear Philippe,

unfortunately, things seem to be weird:

I had found your suggestion to put in /etc/sysconfig/network/config

NETCONFIG_DNS_POLICY="STATIC_FALLBACK ppp* NetworkManager"

also in the internet some days ago. Some people report success with the
following

NETCONFIG_DNS_POLICY="ppp* NetworkManager"

Both of these settings make my wvdial work, but none of them has made my
kppp work. Moreover, starting my computer today, kppp doesn't work as it
did yesterday: It says again "Modem ready" and then "Modem doesn't
answer", although I am doing kppp as su, the kppprc in
/root/.kde4/share/config is still there and I defined the variable
export $(dbus-launch), everything as yesterday.
So again I did the
strace -v -e trace=all -f -o kppp.log kppp
and append the kppp.log to this mail.

Yours sincerely
Wolfgang

Dear Wolfgang,

You ought to be able to check whether my reply on 06/03/2012 12:34 is
correct. It is recalled hereafter. For this test you do not need to
change ppp0 to ppp* in your /etc/sysconfig/network/config. Just start
up kppp without strace and the DNS settings failing:

Then you issue:

$ ifconfig -a

If ppp shows up different that ppp0, then I should be fully right.

Best,
Philippe

Dear Wolfgang,

If I summarize the URL link previously sent, you should have rather
set:
NETCONFIG_DNS_POLICY="STATIC_FALLBACK ppp* NetworkManager"
instead of:
NETCONFIG_DNS_POLICY="STATIC_FALLBACK ppp0 NetworkManager"
in your /etc/sysconfig/network/config

This way both wvdial and kppp ought to correctly work with the
/etc/resolv.conf correctly set up.

Best regards,
Philippe

With DNS1 and DNS2 which should be provided by your ISP.

Then it opens:
10362 open("/etc/sysconfig/network/config", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 5
10362 fstat64(5, {st_dev=makedev(253, 1), st_ino=272660,
st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_nlink=1, st_uid=0, st_gid=0,

st_blocks=32, st_size=12830, st_atime=2012/03/05-17:08:31,
st_mtime=2012/02/29-23:32:58, st_ctime=2012/02/29-23:32:58}) = 0
which succeeds.

So the best place where to look is now /var/log/messages.

Before you run kppp from a root account, can you create a new
terminal
and issue tail -f /var/log/messages and check what pppd says ?

Then rerun kppp normally (i.e.: without strace)

Philippe,

to put kppprc into /root/.kde4/share/config was really the right
point!
Having done this and trying $kppp as su it still crashes, but with
the
hint to first set

export $(dbus-launch).

So I did this (whatever it means...), and kppp runs under su *and*
under
user! It connects to my internet provider, but I don't get any
throughput, ping says

Network is unreachable

and ssh says

Could not resolve hostname

so this seems to be the old DNS-problem. I did again a
strace -v -e trace=all -f -o kppp.log kppp (this time as su)
and append the kppp.log (it is rather long, sorry for the spam to
all
others...).

I can't try efax as a user, because it sits in my
root-directory... And
here the rights of my /dev/536ep0:

crw------- 1 root root 240, 1 5. Mär 20:05 536ep0

Dear Wolfgang,

Now when executed as root, kppp attempts to open
/root/.kde4/share/config/kppprc and does not find it.
6841 stat64("/root/.kde4/share/config/kppprc", 0x8141d1c) = -1

You should really do the the following:

$ sudo mkdir /root/.kde4
$ sudo mkdir /root/.kde4/share
$ sudo mkdir /root/.kde4/share/config
$ sudo cp /home/junker/.kde4/share/config/kppprc
/root/.kde4/share/config/kppprc
Then from a root account:
# kppp
or from a user account:
$ sudo kppp
or identically from a user account:
$ su -c 'kppp'

Yours truly,

Dear Philippe,

this is right, I am doing kppp as user. For this I have changed
the
rights of /usr/bin/kppp to

-rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 554352 22. Feb 2011 kppp

(This is how it worked for SUSE 10.3). If I do kppp as root, the
program
crashes rightaway. The "Permission denied" must somehow be an
artefact
of strace, I didn't get these messages before, and, as I said, I
did
already get an internet connection with kppp (up to the DNS-issue)
with
precisely the present configuration. E.g. the rights of /dev/modem
are
as follows:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 5. Mär 20:05 modem -> /dev/536ep
crw-rw-rw- 1 root dialout 240, 1 5. Mär 20:05 536ep

I tried now the $strace -v -e trace=all -f -o kppp.log kppp
as root, but, as I said, the program crashes. I append the
kppp.log-file
which was created.

Dear Wolfgang,

As far as it seems you start kppp from your user account and not
from
a root account. This explains why you get all these
/etc/ppp/chap-secrets* "Permission denied".

You have this:

[philippe@victor ~]$ grep /etc/ppp/chap-secrets kppp.log
12745 open("/etc/ppp/chap-secrets.new",
O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_TRUNC|O_LARGEFILE, 0666) = -1 EACCES
(Permission
denied)
12745 unlink("/etc/ppp/chap-secrets.old") = -1 ENOENT (No such
file or
directory)
12745 rename("/etc/ppp/chap-secrets",
"/etc/ppp/chap-secrets.old") =
-1 EACCES (Permission denied)
12745 rename("/etc/ppp/chap-secrets.new",
"/etc/ppp/chap-secrets") =
-1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
12745 access("/etc/ppp/chap-secrets.old", F_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No
such
file or directory)

Next you have:

12745 open("/dev/modem", O_RDWR|O_NOCTTY|O_NONBLOCK|O_LARGEFILE)
= -1
EACCES (Permission denied)
12745 write(2, "error opening modem device !\n", 29) = 29

Looks very strange if efax from a user account is able to open
/dev/modem ! Check for /dev/modem permissions. You might have
change
the /dev/modem permissions for hylafax operations.

On my Fedora 16 computer, I have:

[philippe@victor ~]$ ls /usr/bin/kppp
/usr/bin/kppp
[philippe@victor ~]$ ls -l /usr/bin/kppp
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 13 Mar 5 04:29 /usr/bin/kppp ->
consolehelper
[philippe@victor ~]$ ls -l /usr/sbin/kppp
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 749004 Dec 3 07:28 /usr/sbin/kppp

If, from my user account, I:
$ strace -v -e trace=all -f -o kppp.vouters.log /usr/sbin/kppp
I see on my screen first that I am not allowed to run pppd
unless it
the SUID bit (Capture 19:22:22.png)
Next a dialog to configure kppp (Capture 19:17:21.png).

In conclusion and under Fedora, the usual way is to call
/usr/bin/kppp
which activate a dialog prompting for root password
(consolehelper
role), next activating /usr/sbin/kppp from a root context.

Your problem comes from you do not activate kppp from a root
context.
Hence all the permission denied.

Kind regards,
Philippe

Dear Jacques, Wolfgang,

I just downloaded the adequate RPM for Fedora 16 containing
kppp.
From
a root account, I ran strace over kppp. Because there are
numerous
open calls, I edited the file and searched for the "kppp"
string.

First kppp attempts to open /root/.kde/share/config/kppprc.
From
this
it knows what it must do, therefore directly proposing for me a
connection my old tiscali provider. Next as I previously
specified
/dev/modem in this configuration, it opens /dev/modem and
tries to
connect. Because the modem is no longer connected to an analog
phone
line, kppp fails with a NO DIALTONE. So its sounds so far very
sane.

Yours truly,
Philippe
