When I log into Fluxbox, I suddenly started getting no taskbar at the bottom, and right-clicking the desktop doesn't give me anything. All that I get is the background I've set in the ~/.fluxbox/startup
What could have possibly happened?
I believe I have a unique problem with the IPW2200 card. I've never seen a thread explaining a problem like this with this card, so...
I had to scrap my previous install of Fedora 7 (installed from the KDE Live CD) because I apparently FUBARed the kernel somehow and couldn't even get to a login screen. What's interesting is that on my previous install (the one I had to scrap) I managed (while it still worked) to get my wireless running flawlessly with no need for downloading firmware or anything like that. It just worked out of the starting blocks.
On my newest install, I absolutely cannot get the interface activated. Before you ask (I know somebody will), I do have the newest Firmware (v3.0) and the kernel mod is running. I've tried the firmware from the repos, too. No look in either case. Attempting to activate the interface in system-config-network
Error for wireless request "Set Bit Rate" (8B20) :
SET failed on device eth0 ; Invalid argument.
Determining IP information for eth0... failed.
I've had problems with this card before, but never this specific problem. I've tried deleting the interface and making a new one, and I get the same error. I'm fully updated. Any thoughts?
