I know, I know... Not another Slackware wireless thread. But I am truly stumped here.
Now let me start out this thread by saying my wireless works perfect IF
I start KDE and just sign in using the wireless manger. Flawlessly, no hiccups, nice and fast, etc...
Now for some reason, possibly sadistic. I want to have my wireless setup in the traditional fashion, and dont feel like starting X every time I want an internet connection. This is for a desktop workstation, that will only connect to this 1 wireless network 24/7 for the rest of its life. Also this is a Wireless network with WPA2 security on it.
I have a clean fresh slack 14rc install, with 1 wired interface not configured or needed, and 1 wireless "wlan0" interface that uses the ath9k driver.
I have it setup using Aliens Bob's guide step for step exactly.
Here is my "rc.inet1.conf" pertanint sections only of course, the rest left default.
## Example config information for wlan0. Uncomment the lines you need and fill
## in your data. (You may not need all of these for your wireless network)
#WLAN_IWPRIV="set AuthMode=WPAPSK | set EncrypType=TKIP | set WPAPSK=96389dc66eaf7e6efd5b5523ae43c7925ff4df2f8b7099495192d44a774fda16"
Also my wpa_supplicant.conf file
