Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

Hi, I just patched my kernel to be able to locate my wireless card, and now it seems that every time I run the switchto script, 1) Mozilla freezes after loading up only one page (all other internet related programs work fine), and 2) When I try to log off gnome, it freezes and doesn't shut down, forcing me to ctrl-c it. Is there a better way to shut it down? Also, any ideas on my problem? Thanks in advance.
switchto is a program that allows me to switch between wireless, my lan, etc (I think it's basically an interface to the iw* tools)
I'm using the latest version of slackware (9.0? 9.1 - what's teh command to check again?)
My wireless card is a built in LAN-Express 802.11b, and it uses a patched version of the orinoco_pci driver (I had to patch the orinoco_pci.c file myself, and then recompile the kernel)
Also, I let it run for like 10 minutes, and it did eventually end up asking me if I wanted to log off.....I guess that means it's trying to shut something down (which is taking a long time) in the logoff process? Is there a way I can check exactly what it's trying to do, and then kill it before?
