Mine is probably a simple issue for you to resolve, but if you could be patient-as I am quite new to Linux. I'm most interested in the answer for the next paragraph, so if you want, just read that!! The rest are bonus questions!
When loading Debian (188.8.131.52 kernel) i sometimes get an error coming up saying "unable to start device IPW2100" and this constantly happens. As mentioned-this does not happen every time I boot-but there seems to be no pattern to it. I do not know what to post that may help-so please let me know whats needed if anything.
Also, when i load KDE (startx) it comes up with a few errors, but when I do it again it works fine-without posting the errors (i will when I get into Linux OK, I am on Windows right now (boo i hear you cry!). Any initial thoughts?
Finally-can anyone recommend a good utility to manage wireless network profiles-I use several ones, and would like to scan for new ones (i would prefer it to be GUI based)
"the error came up as unable to start device" and it prevented me from using Wifi-however, i have found a pattern as to why it wasnt working (i think)--i havent been shutting down properly and it seems to be connected to that, hasnt happed after 10-15 reboots now, it was as simple as that!!!!
