Automatic network connection
« on: November 07, 2009, 12:42:44 am »
Hi All,
I have Vector 6 (non live) installed.
Everytime I boot up I have to manually run Wicd to connect to my wired internet connection.

How do I automate this so that when I boot up into Vector I automatically have access to the internet?

I am assuming you mean Vec6.0 light.

To autostart Wicd daemon for your system, add:
Code: [Select]
Code: [Select]
/etc/rc.d/rc.localThis will connect you to your local network

To autostart client for user when using icewm add
Code: [Select]
Code: [Select]
This will show the Wicd GUI when you log in.

This also assumes you are using icewm for your window manager. For another window magager add
Code: [Select]
Code: [Select]
