CLI network utilities not working
I am unable to use wget, slackpkg, and swaret. links is working, as is ping.
I am able to use firefox and thunderbird.
This became an issue after I uninstalled dropline gnome.
I reinstalled the packages that were previously replaced by the dropline installer as per the sticky post on the dropline support forum. I re-ran netconfig and xwmconfig.
I have another machine on the same network, and it only runs KDE (never had dropline gnome installed on it) and it does not have these issues. the issue is not my network, it is local to this machine. I know I am probably overlooking an rc script or a *.conf, but I am at a loss here.
I am not blaming Dropline Gnome, so please, let's not start a "my GUI is better than yours!" flame war.
Any help is appreciated.
