WCID as network controller replacing origianal failed system


My Network manager failed - don't ask me how - and I installed 'wcid'. Problem solved. Well, not quite as during the boot-up phase the boot searches for and fails to find the network. This takes several minutes with a number of warnings appearing on the lines of Searching another 60 seconds.

Network is finally found and thereafter everything runs sweetly. But how the dickens do I by-pass this frustrating stage during boot? Please keep the responses simple as technically I am probably still too new to this to cope!

Did you un-install Network Manager? If not, try that to see if that clears up the problems.

Smile Thank you

Thank you for your suggestion. I hade considered it, but was worried that I could do untold damage to 'wicd' or my access to the network. I don't suppose you would be able to identify the files that need removing ? I use the Synaptic package manager

Thanks again

Synaptic package manager can remove the files for one package. Removing NM should not affect WICD, they are separate packages. I believe Synaptics will tell you what its going to do before it does it. Look at that, and make a judgment call.

I did this a few releases ago on Ubuntu. Removing NM only removed the files for NM, and allowed WICD to work as intended.
