Try installing wicd, or network maanger, and all their dependencies (though you might want to weed out the graphical ones I suppose). Both can be used from the CLI.

Or perhaps if you just look at the deps, you will see something that leaps out at you.

The only thing missing is the drivers. Ifconfig, iwconfig, and wpa_supplicant all appear to be fully functional, they give me plenty of feedback when I issue commands. I suspect the problem is that my config file isn't fully developed. I just have the bit concerning the ssid and passkey. I can see the information on the wlan0 card I just can't get it to send and receive.

I ran this command;

Code: Select all

basename $( readlink /sys/class/net/eth0/device/driver )
and found out I have the ath9k driver on this laptop. This is the same laptop I had a fully functional Salix install on just a while ago but now wpa_supplicant is telling me this is not a supported driver. I get the same response from the firmware I installed from the iso.

I didn't know wicd could be run from the command line. I'll install it since I know it worked before. Thanks.
