KNet (formerly kdsl)

Hi, and thank-you for the comments.

Unfortunately kdsl needs the wrapper to make it work in non root mode. I noticed that on Redhat 9, it too did not include the wrapper, and I had to install rp-pppoe-gui to get the wrapper.
I am planning on writing my own wrapper to control the normal adsl-start and adsl-stop tools, but want to firstly make sure that kdsl is installing properly on all versions of Linux and is working well. Any feedback is appreciated. - Jan 26 2004

I agree with you, and I am totally in favour of supporting other similar projects. As for Kdsl, I started it quite a few months ago in an effort to learn programming, and at the time, I never really thought I would get the program to actually work!! So for me, it wouldn't have been appropriate at the time to offer my services to another project when I had no programming skills. Kdsl was merely a way for me to learn, and also to develop the type of program I've wanted for a long time.
I also think that having a variety of similar programs is a good thing - like KDE vs Gnome...... they're both desktop environments, they both do similar things, yet they each cater for different tastes.
Its a bit like a car - why drive a BMW when you can drive a Ford! :) - Jan 24 2004

kpppoe and rp-pppoek are both dock icon programs that control pppoe. kpppoe did not work for me, and rp-pppoek did work for me but did not have the features I wanted. - Jan 18 2004
