I recently got my wired and wireless networks up and running. I followed the instructions in Alien Bob's wiki, loaded wicd, and found the proper drivers. All was well. I received a lot of helpful advice in this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...n-.tgz-674709/
Then I went away for five days, came home and this is what now happens: while booting the process halts here for a at least a minute: Triggering udev events: /sbin.udevtrigger –retry failed;
and then repeatedly scrolling down the screen is the following:
failed to connect to wpa_supplicant-wpa_ctrl_open: No such file or
and then: polling for dhcp server on interface wlan0 no carrier detected
Neither my wired network nor my wireless now works. Wicd appears when KDE loads. I can open it and see the wireless networks but cannot connect to them nor can I connect to the wired network.
I have read the following thread w/o much luck http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ectory-611577/
I am happy to post the output of whatever commands would be best or contents of particular files. I did not do so now as I wanted to wait and see what advice I got--and most importantly i cannot get online on the Slackware machine. I did go into rc.inet1.conf to try and see if I could fix things; I may have made them worse.
So, any help would be appreciated. I really do not what cold have happened--especially with the wired network as it was working just fine.
I can type in relevant portions of ifconfig if that would help.
In another thread (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...=wired+network
) I found the following advice: Once you run the 'netconfig' be sure to '/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart'.
I did that in a terminal and was connected via my wired network. Then I tried to connect via wireless and it would not connect (though wicd sees all the networks around me). Then I had to rerun /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart to get back on the wired network. But at least now I can post my outputs.
