Though the iso I made might have not been
I think that's where the problem lies. Slackware 14 does NOT ship with python 2.6.

Bear in mind that you might have problems with other Python packages compiled with Python 2.6. In each case you'll have to recompile them. You might consider installing a REAL fresh Slackware 14 install using an up to date iso image

Still useful advice.

Sorry to necropost but I felt I had to thank those posting as this has just enabled me to make this post using wireless on my new Slackware install on this laptop. I had updated from 14.1 to Current so had to uninstall and reinstall wicd to get things working.
Thanks again to the Slackware community.


python, slackware, wicd
