OK guys, here's the thing.
I've just installed Slackware 10.2 onto my desktop computer.
Erelier I have used VectorLinux, and I don't want to stress about compiling my own kernel, so I decided to install Slackware because I need to get my WiFi card work. Besides, I want to learn a distro where I'm in total control of the system.
This is my weird issues:
When I pull a "shutdown -h now", the OS is killed, but my computer is still alive if you see what I mean. All the umounting of devices and so on are made in the console,but when its finished, it stands "Power off", and then I have to use the powerswitch on my computer to kill my box. When I used VectorLinux, my computer was shut down properly when I used "shudown -s now". Any idea of how I can make my computer _shutdown_?
Solution: "modprobe apm"

2. WiFi Driver
I have a D-Link PCI card which is supperted by the madwifi driver, so I installed it, using this HowTo:
These are the steps I have done so far:
Installed the driver(make, make install)
Loaded the module(modprobe ath_pci)
Created an interface (wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode sta)
Brought up the interface(ifconfig ath0 up)
Scanned for networks(wlanconfig ath0 list scan)
Connected to a open network(iwconfig ath0 essid "netname")
At this point, when I open Kwifimanager, it tells me how strong the signal is, transferspeed and so on, so I recon the card works.
But when I do a "dhclient ath0" I get this error:
"ath0: not found"
When I when i pull a "dhclient" it tries to get an IP adress for the eth0 interface, but when I pull a dhclient eth0, I get the same error as with "dhclient ath0":
"eth0: not found"
3.[Fixed] Optical mouse.
My Dell optical USB mouse don't work in slackware, but it did in Vector. And the X.org conf is the same. Any Ideas?
Solution: run mouseconfig and choose USB and restart X.
