Just finished my fresh install of slack12 (i tried the upgrade from slack11, but that gave me hell, so it was time for a clean machine anyway
However, several strange things I noticed... But the most annoying one is the not automatically getting my IP on boot.
It notices my eth0 (wired) is not connected (which is correct!) so it dhcpcd timeout is set to 10 sec (changed that to 3
however, eth1 (my wireless card) does not get an IP, while every other setting is correct (essid, keys etc)
When I manually run dhcpcd eth1, i instantly get an IP. This should automatically work on boot???
