First, are you sure you need a dialer? Do you have dsl router or dsl modem?
If it’s a router, your username/password settings will be already configured
in your router’s setup page so you will not have to enter that info again.
Though this setup varies upon ISPs and countries.
Anyway, there are detailed instructions on how to setup a dsl connection in
the Reference manual):
> Info means just like ordinary DSL Connections means i have
> userid,password thats it what else i should provide sir
There are no “ordinary” dsl connections, just “different” connection
You can use a modem (connected to your computer via usb port) or a router
(with ethernet ports). Routers can act like a modem (userid, password
usually this comes preconfigured by your ISP and no setup from your side is
required) or can be direct connected to the isp.
A modem will require a dialer (smppp, kppp, kinternet, cinternet…)
A router should not require anything special for you to setup and they
just work out-of-the-box.
So I ask… do you need a dialer for your setup to work? What of connection
do you have? Did you configure you ethernet card? Can you ping dsl device?
Do you have usb cable or ethernet cable attached to dsl device?
In windows: In windows i use network connections in control panel and create a new connection then it’ll prompt me to enter broadband user id,password and i get connected
In Opensuse Gnome(Live CD): I simply right click on the network manager and choose edit connection and then i’ll choose Dsl connection it’ll ask me user id password i get connected
This is the same process in all other linux distros like ubuntu,linuxmint,fedora etc.

O.k. that explains all. You are using a dsl modem

And what happens on your opensuse installation? You go and configure
networkmanager and put you username/password and then…? Are you getting
any message error, have you tested to “ping” any remote site,
i.e., ‘ping -c 3 google.com’?
Once networkmanager is configured as usual (the same you did in gnome
liveCD), open a terminal, and being root, type:

Are you now using kde4? If so, you can configure your dsl connection -in the
same way you did with gnome- with yast and networkmanager.
Go to yast / network devices / dsl and add your device here. It will ask
some questions about your isp settings and your username/password.
After that, your new created connection should appear under network manager
icon on systray under tab “dsl” to check the status, etc…
Once your done, go to a terminal an (as root) type:
And put here the output.

LiveCD and DVD are the same… the only difference I see here is that you
first tested with Gnome in livecd but installed KDE using dvd. Just
properly setup the network connection, no need to reinstall the whole
