Dbus and wicd in -current64


I just did a fresh install of -current64 (current as of this posting, have my own mirror that updates every night), and now wicd will not work. It keeps giving me an error message when I start X about cannot connect to dbus check configuration. Anyone else having this?

I had the same problem. Then I found the README.Slackware in the "extra/wicd" directory. It told me to add users to the netdev group & that solved my hassles.
Regards,
Bill

Incidentally, I anticipated this, and I thought it was addressed in the wicd code. The curses client (wicd-curses) tells the user *exactly* what is wrong, but the gui client doesn't for whatever reason. I'll look into it.

@ TSquaredF: Thanks. I know I should read the documentation, but didn't even think about it since it worked before without being in that group. Works now though.

Yes, I see the info from curses client too. But I think the GUI should give the some information or the users will get confused on the first try.
