Puppy linux network tools won't connect on boot, though I can connect manually


Puppy linux 5.7.1 full install...

Until recently, the "Simple Network Setup" was working fine -- it's what I used to set up my wi-fi connection on installation, and it has been connecting on boot ever since. But a few days ago, it just stopped working.

(I did find a mention on another forum that "PRecord" in combination with "Retrovol" had been discovered to have a bug that wrote spurious files to a /dev directory, which rang a bell with me, because I happen to have used exactly that program within the last few days, but this may be *completely* a red herring.)

At the moment, I *can* get onto my home network, but I am doing it by opening terminal windows and running wpa_supplicant and dhcpd manually; I'd rather let the OS tools do it for me; call me lazy!

What works is...
In a terminal, I invoke
Code:
wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -D wext -c /etc/network-wizard/wireless/wpa_profiles/wpa_supplicant.conf -dd &
and when that process has done its stuff, I invoke dhcpcd and it connects.

That wpa_supplicant.conf looks like this
Code:
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
update_config=1

network={
	ssid="Belkin_Router"
	scan_ssid=1
	psk="MyKeyInPlainForm"
proto=WPA
	key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
	pairwise=TKIP
	group=TKIP
	priority=1
}
and my most recent successful connection was as follows
Code:
# wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -D wext -c /etc/network-wizard/wireless/wpa_profiles/wpa_supplicant.conf -dd &
[1] 16955

What *doesn't* work is using the "Simple Network Setup" tool. (Nor do the alternative Puppy network tools, but their logs aren't as readily available.) For what it's worth, if I run from a Live CD, it works every time, but from my full install, when I start that tool, it reports on detected interfaces, and I click on wlan0 to configure it... it scans for and finds my network, and I tell it that the network is WPA secured, and supply the key. It then attempts to connect, and fails. Can a savvy reader get any clues from the following?

When I tell it about the WPA security and enter the key, it writes (and then I presume attempts to use) the following wpa_supplicant.conf
Code:
# (this is written as wpa_supplicant.conf-Belkin_Router-64:70:02:EC:BC:4E)
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ap_scan=0

network={
 ssid="Belkin_Router"
 key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
 psk=MyKeyEncodedSomehowInAMuchLongerTextLine
}
and its failure is logged as follows
Code:

Since running as a full install. Also. Since Puppy runs as root. You probably have a changed/corrupted setup/config file.

I am not criticizing. Just letting you know what to look for. One reason Frugal installs are so popular. Is because of the situation you find your self in. In a frugal install. You can make backups of states of install. That way if something gets corrupted in a running save session. Another save session. That is pristine. Can be subbed in instead, and the corrupted on deleted.

I do not know how to sub in Barrys Simple Network Manager, Frisbee, and Dougals Network Manager configs and bin or .sh files in a full install,. Pfind may help. Problem with this is. Since you say all do not work as they should. But Manual through Console does. The problem is outside of All those connection wizard and their config files. It is further down the road.
I have no idea where they all have meeting spot where they all fail.

Because. I am just a Linux using scooter tramp who knows just a little about Linux file structure and Wifi.
But no expert at all. So this post is more about ideas for you. Instead of a direct fix.

I hope You are posting in Murga forums about this issue. Those guys are sharper than I.

Thanks for that thought about "The problem is outside of All those connection wizard and their config files. It is further down the road.
I have no idea where they all have meeting spot where they all fail."

Here's how I [solved]...

In light of your observations, I just stopped wasting a lot of time looking at those configuration files, and picked up on another idea, from the thread I had happened across previously, which I had thought was probably a red herring.

That thread suggested that PRecord had been known to write spurious entries into the /dev directory... but I had no earthly means of finding out what those might be, so I took a chance on simply replacing the /dev tree with one lifted from a fresh installation of Puppy on a spare partition. (Same hardware on the machine, after all!) With the new /dev tree, all the network tools now work just fine, so whatever was causing the mischief must have been in there somewhere. So far, no nasty side effects observed... if anyone reading this feels there is anything I should be warned about, please share!

By the way... I would have liked to post on the Murga forums, but I don't seem to be able to join them. My join requests seem to disappear into thin air!
