j.a.watson,

I am at the office now and can't try "lspci -v".  Do you recall what repository you used to get the iwlagn driver? I can try that tomorrow.

thanks

I noticed the following in the README file, as I attempted to follow along with j.a.watson's suggestion (by downloading the microcode images (iwlwifi-5000-ucode-8.83.5.1/iwlwifi-5000-5.ucode)
 from intellinuxwireless.org.  This file apparently has to be somewhere on the system but I don't know where to put it.
:

Quote
1. OVERVIEW

The file iwlwifi-5000-5.ucode provided in this package must be
present on your system in order for the Intel Wireless WiFi Link
AGN driver for Linux (iwlagn) to operate on your system.

The "-5" in the filename reflects an interface/architecture version number.
It will change only when changes in new uCode releases make the new uCode
incompatible with earlier drivers.

On adapter initialization, and at varying times during the uptime of
the adapter, the microcode is loaded into the memory on the network
adapter.  The microcode provides the low level MAC features including
radio control and high precision timing events (backoff, transmit,
etc.) while also providing varying levels of packet filtering which can
be used to keep the host from having to handle packets that are not of
interest given the current operating mode of the device.

2. INSTALLATION

The iwlagn driver will look for the file iwlwifi-5000-5.ucode using the
kernel's firmware_loader infrastructure.  In order to function
correctly, you need to have this support enabled in your kernel.  When
you configure the kernel, you can find this option in the following
location:

        Device Drivers ->
                Generic Driver Options ->
                        Hotplug firmware loading support


You can determine if your kernel currently has firmware loader support
by looking for the CONFIG_FW_LOADER definition on your kernel's
.config.

In addition to having the firmware_loader support in your kernel, you
must also have a working hotplug and udev infrastructure configured.
The steps for installing and configuring hotplug and udev are very
distribution specific.

Once you have the firmware loader in place (or if you aren't sure and
you just want to try things to see if it works), you need to install
the microcode file into the appropriate location.

Where that appropriate location is depends (again) on your system
distribution.  You can typically find this location by looking in the
hotplug configuration file for your distro:

   % grep \"^FIRMWARE_DIR\" /etc/hotplug/firmware.agent

This should give you output like:

   FIRMWARE_DIR=/lib/firmware

If it lists more than one directory, you only need to put the
microcode in one of them.  In the above example, installation is
simply:

   % cp iwlwifi-5000-5.ucode /lib/firmware

You can now load the driver (see the INSTALL and README.iwlwifi provided with
the iwlwifi package for information on building and using that driver.)

Other than the problem I am having getting on the wireless, VL 7 Beta 2.1 seems to work great on my new Samsung RF511 S03.

try this...should be similar with your 1000 series
check your log files under /var/log/ for any message

Your lsmod show iwlagn module is loaded. Did you try ifconfig or iwconfig?

Ha!  It works!  YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!  hata_ph and everyone who helped, thanks a trillion!  Unless I hear otherwise, in the morning I will delete some of the quotes I posted tonight as they are too lengthy and are messing up this thread.

Another comment about VL 7.beta 2.1. I don't see the root (backup) version of grsync.  That was quite helpful.  Now that the wireless is working I plan to move my stuff over and will report further.   I think moving files over would be easier with the root backup grsync program.

dosemu (testing repository) installs as root.  Formerly, I ran it as non-root.

grsync (root backup) is not available.  This is a crucial backup program.

As I have said, I really like VL7

not sure about dosemu but grsync-1.1.1 is in the VL7 testing repo...can you double check?

Recently, my normally very fast Vector Linux 7 installation started slowing down to a crawl for long periods. When I ran htop,  I noticed that there were 9 instances of cairo-dock running. I turned off cairo-dock and uninstalled it.  The speed of the operating system improved dramatically. I am running a normal installation with the packages, extra and testing repositories for updates. I have also installed the proprietary Nvidia driver. Clearly, the problem was cairo-dock since everything else is running well.
The cairo-dock is very pretty to look at but perhaps it should not be part of the base installation.
Has anyone else hit this problem?
I should note that cairo-dock was not an issue with the initial installation. Only after I had been running Vector Linux for about two weeks did I run into an ongoing problem. It may have been affected by one of the updates.
