I'm a slackware evangelist... I tell everyone i can that slack is the way to go... and i've never had it fail me... until now
i have a clean install of slack 11... i have a wireless card with the ralink rt61 chipset... it's detected at boot (according to dmesg) and the rt61 module is loaded (according to lsmod) cool, right!
here's the stupid question... are you ready?
where do i put the configuration? in the past, i've had wired ethernet cards and netconfig did it all for me!!! i know, i know... "don't rely on tools if you don't know what they're doing"
i am using the latest nightly build of the rt61 driver from serialmonkey (rt2x00.serialmonkey.com) and this driver is supposed to support WPA-TKIP encryption (which i have activated on my wireless network (apple airport extreme basestation) and to which both my apple ibook and sony psp can connect w/o a problem)... however,
only seems to discuss WEP keys...
also, my routing tables are empty and i can't seem to set them up...
route add -net 10.0.1.0 ra0
any thoughts? need more info?
running ifconfig shows the card up and broadcasting but with no ip address...
i feel like a stupid n00b but... (btw, it was all up and running in kubuntu... but i wanted to be smart not easy!!!)
cheers... thanks in advance... etc!
