I'm currently rocking an Acer Aspire One with a standard GNOME Ubuntu Intrepid installed. I've since tried Fedora 10 XFCE, and found it to be lightning fast and ready to go outta the box - i'm seriosuly considering switching to what looks to be a very polished distro.
However, i use my mobile phone (HTC Hermes/Orange SPV M3100) on the UK Orange network when out and about for connectivity. On Ubuntu based systems, i connect the phone and run the following commands:
/sbin/modprobe ipaq vendor=0x0bb4 product=0x00cf
And then everything works OK. On Fedora, when copying my wvidal.conf and options file from Ubuntu and attempting to dial, everything appears to work OK - the phone lights up and there are no error messages displayed, but i cannot load any webpages - Firefox just tells me that i am not connected (have checked that "Work Offline" isn't ticked). Interestingly, the Networking Manager will recognise my phone as a modem, which Ubuntu will not, so this is an alternative option, but when i create a GSM connection i see no clear way to dial it?
Any help that anyone could be kind enough to offer in getting me online via either method would be much appreciated. Attached below is my wvdial file as used in Ubuntu (options file is too long but i have it to hand).
