Hi,

Wireless networking has seemed to stop working on my netboot. I've compiled in support for the network card and lspci shows the following;

Code:
01:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000 [Condor Peak]


when I run

Code:
#/etc/init.d/wpa_supplicant start


I get the following;

Code:
 * Stopping WPA Supplicant Daemon ...                                                                                           [ ok ]
 * Starting WPA Supplicant Daemon ...
Successfully initialized wpa_supplicant

ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument
ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument
ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument

I'm not sure what this output means.It was working previously and I haven't changed anything on my netbook.

Hi Tractor Girl,

Thanks for the reply. I've figured out what I've done wrong. I'm using Hardened/SELinux and I booted the wrong kernel.

Feeling pretty stupid right about now... :oops:
