This is my first post to a newsgroup with a Linux question, and I'm only
doing so in admission of defeat. I'm a recent installer, and have been through
a TON of FAQ's, newsgroups, outdated and inappropriate manuals, and reinstalls.
And it really didn't seem like that big of a problem =(
What happens is that I can't seem to get a good connect to my PPP provider
with either a Rockwell 28.8 or a USR Sportster X2 modem. My Kbytes per second
usually comes in about 1.1 to 1.4, and sustained data loads will usually result
in disconnects in about an hour or so (which is most of my downloads,
considering the above stated abysmal speed).
To complicate this, whenever the modem connection drops, a zillion ip-down
(OK, that's an exaggeration, more like 430) processes spawn, and gobble up ALL
the memory (real and swap) on the machine. This causes the modem to fail to
connect again on the retry, and scrolls "unable to load interpreter" messages
across the screen.
This takes about 5 minutes or so before the lemmings die of starvation with
no more memory, and the modem can connect again. Then, over the course of the
next 20 minutes or so, memory is slowly released and machine performance (not
modem) gradually improves.
The machine is a 486/66dx2 with 20mb of RAM and 50meg of swap, running Red
Hat 5.0 with Kernel 2.0.32, pppd 2.3 (or 2.2 according to the messages file).
Anyone see this before, or have an idea on a PPP modem string to help prevent
the initial disconnects and poor speed?
The modems work fine for my local provider and AOL on the same box, the lines
clear enough to make 53k connects on the USR.
