General Questions


I just installed Slackware 11 on my laptop using the huge26.s kernel. It all installed well and after getting the wireless to work things are great. Well my question is, when I connect to wireless networks I use the iwconfig command. Well only root can execute that command and I want all users to be able to. Also when the laptop starts it tries to obtain an ip address for the integrated nic. How can I stop that because it takes forever.

You can try using sudo or SUID to allow all users to run iwconfig. You'll need to do more research on the details.

as root, open up /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf and comment out the lines for eth0.
