Wow I'm surprised moving that to a much higher number didn't cut it.. Ubuntu does start up in runlevel 2 just like Debian right ?


Download and unzip the driver package, and read the file titled INSTALL. it should explain how to install that build on your system.

Ubuntu does start in run level 2 -- that is the default.
When you say drivers, you meant the wicd package right?

The 1.6.0b3 tar ball opens into a folder with two files on it --

pkgbuild and wicd.install

both have code in them. none have any instructions -- this is where i stopped yesterday -- wasn't sure what to do beyond that. when i chmod'ed both of them to executable and ran them, they did not run.
By the way, network manager was able to auto-connect at boot time for both my desktops, but reliably failed to auto-reconnect if the network router was rebooted afterwards. That is the reason I switched to wicd -- now I have fully solved the problem for the one desktop, but half a problem remains for this one.

I will try the 1.6.0b3 -- i looked at the .tar.gz file

I sorted it out without that though ..
added

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

in the interfaces file

Strange -- the interfaces file in the second desktop did not have these two lines -- just the loopbacl stuff, and it still autoconnects. Not sure what to make of that.

Thank you very much for your help.
