Is there such thing as "sudo" in Slackware, for temporarily upgrading my privileges?

EDIT: I am going to boot into Slackware and try to connect to the internet via Wireless. Give me a minute. Thanks for your time, it is so much appreciated. Your Thanked Tally should be up from 34 ish to 50ish...I thanked every post you made

Yes, Slackware does have a sudo package. However, I believe you will need to configure sudo in order to use it how you want. This configuration is done in /etc/sudoers, with the command "visudo", but to be honest, I don't know anything about it. Sorry about that. Perhaps start a separate thread about it, since this one now appears to be about your networking issues .

Edit: also remember that Google is your friend - see what you can find about using/configuring sudo and then post a thread if you're not sure what to do.

I have wpa-supplicant present in the system, but couldn't find wicd.

EDIT: the wicd site says its in the /extras section of Slackware. Is this a file that was available in the installer; or is /extras on the filesystem.

That's because it's in the "extra" directory and those packages aren't installed by default. So, if you have your Slackware install media, mount the DVD (or CD4), find the "extra" directory and install the package with "installpkg filename". You'll need to be root to use installpkg. If you don't have the media handy, then you can get the package from any Slackware mirror (e.g. ftp://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/dist...re-13.0/extra/).

All right, I'll use the mirror.
I didn't see any "extras" in the installer.

Yes, the installer doesn't ask you whether you want to install packages from extra. Perhaps that might be a good addition.

Well, I'm almost there...
I just can't connect to the router to get my internet up and going.
I think I use DHCP, according to Windows.
I also tried to use the static options, listing the IP addresses, DNS, gateway, etc. adn it came back with two errors. I know I am using the right password, and I know I use a PSK - TKIP + AES, and it's a hidden network.
What am I doing wrong?

Heres two snapshots of the two errors I get:
The left one is using DHCP|automatic; the right one is with Static|Manual

Not sure about this. One thing, though: it's a good idea to post a copy of the log file, since this should give us useful information. You can find it in /var/log/wicd.

Where did you choose these settings?

If you open the wicd GUI, then choose "Preferences", what settings do you have under "Advanced Settings"? Also, what did you choose for the encryption type when you clicked "Properties" for your network?

Edit: also, here's a link to the wicd homepage - you might find useful documentation and stuff there.

In preferences I tried having everything "Automatic," and I also tried everything "Automatic" except for 1 option, to use "dhcpc" and I even tried, "dhclient," and none of them worked.

In "Properties," I used WPA 1/2 - Pre-shared Key.

EDIT: I'll check out the link real quick, and then I'll get back on Slackware and grap that log.

EDIT: I have a MAC filter set to allow just my MAC. It worked on Ubuntu, Fedora and Windows, so I don't think that could be it.

I had a look on the site and found this, but I'm not sure if it will help me or not.

I guess under "Advanced Settings" in Preferences, you have the driver set to "wext"?

Let's see your log and see if there's anything useful there. I'm not too much of an expert with wicd, so I can't really say whether the problem reported is the same one you're having.

All, right, thanks for the clarification, and thanks for the help, I'll get back with that log asap.

Also, I take it that "Preshared Key" is the right setting for your encryption? If you have a hex key for your network, then I think this is the right option.
