porteus please assist to help auto start wifi
I installed Porteus on my flash drive. I used the pns-tool. It asked me if I wanted to make it a module. I said yes. I activated the module, but it doesn't seem to connect on boot. I can deactivate the module and use the command line tool again to access the Internet. It seems that somehow it would be nice to not have to enter those answers on the command line to questions re: my network setup, each time I want to connect. I am curious. I read about network manager and wicd. I did connect successful with pns-tool.
The module for starting the wifi is in a peculiar place in my home account. I can see where the other modules are and group it there, but I am not sure if it matters where I put these modules once they are activated.
I tried to launch firefox hoping that it was connecting in the background and nothing really happened in terms of connectivity. I kept wondering isn't there supposed to be a message or an indicator in terms of the pns-tool auto connecting with status?
I don't like the network manager very much, as when I try to run it, all the boxes are grayed out. I am not worried about the network manager running because I read in slack ware, unless you make the init script executable, it won't run. That is fine with me.
Please offer any cool suggestions.
I think Porteus is very cool so far. I have the razorQT desktop set up. It looks really neat. I tried crunchbang and puppylinux but Porteus looks like the coolest yet.
I hope a slackware user that uses porteus can answer this question. I figure someone out there heard how cool porteus is that uses slackware and runs both.
