Hello. Just downloaded Waldorf and I'm really liking it
However, I have one wifi issue and I'm not really sure if it's Waldorf's fault or my wifi. I'm hoping someone can help me.
The situation is this: I cannot connect to a specific wifi network. Crunchbang detects several wifi networks so I don't think it's my wifi card (Realtek 8188CE). However, the one I want to connect to--the one for my house--isn't working. It just keeps asking for the password over and over again and I'm certain the password is right because I use it in other laptops.
The strange thing is, it will connect to the other wifi network in my house without problem. Unfortunately, this connection (let's call it network B) will be replaced by network A (the one described above) soon and network B will go down eventually as we're using a new service now--network A, which isn't connecting
If it makes any difference, network A is WPA-Personal and network B is WPA2-Personal. That's the only difference I can think of between the two.
I feel like the problem isn't with Waldorf, but with by network. But I'm really not sure, as I suck at troubleshooting U^_^
So. . . help?
. . . also, apologies if this is posted in the wrong forum.
Are you sure you installed Waldorf, not Statler.
If it is Waldorf you should post in Help & Support (Testing/Unstable)
Post output of
uname -r lspci -knn lsusb
to start with.
Are you using NetworkManager or something else to manage your wireless?

hi guys, sorry the off topic but i´m new on crunchbang and this comunity, i need to know how many time will waldorf receive support, can you tell me please? for example ubuntu lts receive it for five years... and the waldorf? thanks by now
thanks but is not the waldorf based on the wheezy debian testing? so it will have one year support, true?
Wheezy =/= Testing
Right now, Wheezy is Testing; therefore, for now Waldorf is based on Debian Testing. Once Wheezy goes Stable, Waldorf will be based on Debian Stable. (You'll note there is no reference to Stable or Testing in /etc/apt/sources.list.) It will be supported by Debian for about a year past the release of Jessie as Stable.
^ your answer is in the Debian's FAQ
Debian "releases when ready" but then supports that release until about a year after the next release. 22 months to release Etch, 22 months to release Lenny + 12 months = 56 months. Slow moving progress through testing to release, regular point updates with security fixes.
edit: as pvsage already said..

so to complete if i understanded (sorry my english) i will not have to reinstall waldorf (now testing) when it will became stable (next debian stable) , true? my problem is that i have a netbook (only cruchbang is perfect on it) and i will give it now to my litlle sister on the USA... but i leave in europe so i will not have the chance to reinstall it for 2, 3 years and she doesn´t know nothing about linux... thank you very much people and sorry by the off topic
I would just make sure your sources.list has Waldorf/Wheezy, & apt-get upgrade it before passing it on.
That should keep it happy for about four years or so before Jessie, the next Debian release, is made stable.
