Startup Script I wrote for Wireless -works on slackware

Anyone need a script(Perl) that will work for sure on slackware to get your wireless going upon boot?

Command Line:
After determining if it runs successfully on your machine, drop it in /etc/rc.d/rc.local and it'll run on boot! Voila, ask any ?s if you got em :-D

EDIT: Make sure that you change permissions so that it's executable.
chmod 755 should work.

I know you look down on Ubuntu, but I wrote an init script to get wireless networking started during boot that should work on Ubuntu and Debian. With some minor modification, it should also work on other distros, even Slackware.


perl, script, slackware, startup, wireless, works
