slack 12.1 - network not working
sorry to fill up inboxes, but this time i can't really get slack to get online - just installed the newest slack12.1 and everything went perfectly as usual, however, when i started fiddling with it I noticed that it wouldn't get online at all (none of the browsers, just to avoid confusion with a previous thread i started a while ago, but then resolved) - pinging the router is out of the question, and obviously all the cables are properly plugged in just in case!
anyone has had similar problem? if so, how did you fix it?
I have a second question that was bothering me since I had this little inconvenient: is there a way to upgrade to a newer release without re-installing the entire OS? cos obviously you may try to understand the frustrations when passing from an 'old' working release to a 'newer' not working release - before installing I run slapt-get --update, and slapt-get --upgrade and I included on slapt-getrc kernel, alsa, glibc, etc... on top of the default included package-sources, but it didnt upgrade the release.
