wicd on VL 7.1 [Solved]
« on: November 23, 2013, 11:21:54 am »
Putting this outside the 7.1 beta thread, it could be an unnecessary distraction there.
On 32-bit VL 7.1 B0.50, wicd works fine on my laptop.
On all other machines, including vm's, wicd fails to start. Tried on machines with and without wireless connection.
Log file shows errors:

Figured it out.
Copy or rename
/etc/dbus-1/system.d/wicd.conf.new
to
/etc/dbus-1/system.d/wicd.conf
