Hi,

I've installed Gentoo for my machine at home.
I've managed to get the ppp0 interface up and running. ( this is the proof ! ) but I have a strange problem.

I only seem to have access to the nameservers from root.
Any other user can ping an IP address but not an alias like,
'www.gentoo.org'

Anyone have any ideas what could be causing this? I'm just starting pppd with the /etc/init.d/net.ppp0 script with the mimium changes for my ISP.

Thanks,

Tom

PS Here is the ifconfig output:

First guess: your /etc/resolv.conf doesn't have world-readable permissions set on it.
