I think the problem is with RP3, and not the modem, because I tried to use
RP3 from Redhat 6.1 some time ago, and it had the same problem. You could
try kppp, or xisp, instead, to see if those tools work (they are both
graphical tools for X windows; kppp is easier to use than xisp).

Subject: Conentant SoftK56 Problems

I am trying to get my Conexant SoftK56 modem working with RedHat 7.0
Kernel Version 2.2.16.

I installed the Olitec driver for my kernel version and ran ./ins_all.

Under Wvdial the modem dials properly and connects to my ISP.

However, RP3 fails with the following error messages:

       Application "rp3" (process 777) has crashed due to a fatal
        (Segmentation fault)

        Please visit the GNOME Application Crash page for more

I could do without rp3 and just use wvdial but once the ./ins_all
script is run once, I cannot ping any ip address on the web.

I ran route -n and ifconfig before and after running the script.  The
output for both commands was identical.

Any ideas of how to fix this would be very much appreciated.  I am a
complete Linux newbie hoping to wipe Microsoft out of my life
