    Slackware on Acer Aspire 2010


    I have installed Slackware 10.2 on my Acer Aspire 2010. I don't know how to make the wireless working in it!!

    It has an Intel Centrino wireless technology. Is Centrino technology supported in Linux ?

    You need to configure two file:
    /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf
    /etc/rc.d/rc.wireless.conf

    The run "/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 start" (exactly like that) and it should come up.

    EDIT: And I don't think Centrino is supported, at least not on Slackware. Last time I read anything about it, Mandriva 2006 was the only distro that fully supported it (and not the free version).
