KPPP and Auto DNS

Hi there. I've been using kde for several years now, but have never had this issue. I just installed Slackware 10.1, which contains KDE 3.3. KPPP works fine under root, but will not allow me to select 'automatic' for dns under standard users. Thus far, I've done chmod 666 on /dev/modem, /dev/ttyS3, /etc/resolv.conf, /etc/ppp/resolv.conf. Any ideas?

Anyways, thanks a bunch.

No one has answered this question and, I have since located the answer myself. The answer is to give kppp read access to /etc/ppp/options. This can be accomplished by typing (as root) "chmod 604 /etc/ppp/options" or (not root) 'su -c "chmod 604 /etc/ppp/options"'

Anyways, hope this helps somebody.

P.S. Don't do any of the things I did previously, esp. resolv.conf :)
