I have the same issue you are talking about. Did you get any resolution to this? - Oct 24 2005

I've installed 5.4a on both debian and mandrake systems. Both do the exact same thing. The program opens, it sees an AP, and the crashes immediately. Has there been any update as to why this might be? It happens with both compiled and precompiled versions. I've made sure each time to delete any files related to wlassistant before each install.

one quick note, if I just open it as a user without sudo it doesnt crash, it sits at the screen that says I have insufficient permissions.... so its something after that at least. After I click ok I can see that it detects the card and ESSID of local networks but then again crashes.

Hopefully it is ok to post what the output is when running via command line....

I also had to use the suggestion of removing ifdown from the script. Otherwise the network card would not "come up" fast enough for the network test. I am using the package from here

http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/opsys/linux/gentoo/distfiles/wlassistant-0.5.0.tar.bz2

It compiles and works in debian sarge without any problem after I remove ifdown from the script. Maybe this will help in your troubleshooting - Aug 25 2005

I've just tried installing both CVS version and 0.5.3. Each fail just after the networks are detected just after starting. I found an older gentoo source, version 0.5.0, and it seems to be stable, is anyone else having these issues? - Aug 25 2005

I've just compiled system tray on debian sarge and I try find the system tray in panel_menu->add->applet-> but I dont see it there. Is there somewhere else that it may reside or does it not work in sarge's default kde version? Everything compiled and installed cleanly. - Aug 17 2005
