I can't get wicd to start when I log in. wicd-gtk tells me:
Could not connect to wicd's D-Bus interface. Check the wicd log for error messages.
i can make it start by manually typing in "wicd" on the command line as root, but it's a bit troublesome.
I've seen more than one person with this problem, but I can't seem to find any solutions. One guy says it's a selinux issue, and since selinux gripes at me every time i try to start wicd, i assume that this is a similar issue. says some nonsense about python?
here we go:
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/python "read" access on /var/run/wicd.pid.
SELinux denied access requested by wicd. It is not expected that this access is
required by wicd and this access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is also
possible that the specific version or configuration of the application is
causing it to require additional access.
I'd just use nm, but I'm a fan of bzflag, and nm gives me so much jitter/lag/packetloss i get kicked.
If i run wicd as root from the command line after I log in, it runs just fine. If i'm not mistaken, there should be a script in /etc/init.d that starts wicd. It definitely exists on my system, but it doesn't seem to work. 'course, if I try to put any custom init scripts in there, they don't work either, so it probably isn't the script.
