Default Bold tethering issues...

Please Login to Remove!

It looks like some of you are having success tethering your BB Bold with linux. I'm not having as much luck.

Here's what happens to me:

smcmackin@Mariner-T61:/etc/ppp$ sudo pppd call barry-att_cingular
Couldn't open pty slave /dev/pts/0: No such file or directory
Setting abort string
Initializing modem

Waiting for 1 child processes...
script /usr/sbin/pppob -P ******** -s, pid 24178
Script /usr/sbin/pppob -P ******** -s finished (pid 24178), status = 0x1

I'm running barry 0.15 from a PPA for Ubuntu 8.10.

Any help would be greatly appreciated...
