I have a small, usually headless media server at home, and I'm attempting to change its primary network interface from wired ethernet to WiFi. To that end, I installed wicd, which seems to be great for configuring the network. However, booting the machine is taking forever because of the infamous "Waiting for network configuration" issue.
I've already changed my /etc/network/interfaces file and changed references from
wlan0, to no avail.
What strikes me is that I'm seeing something like:
... Waiting for network configuration... Waiting 60 more seconds for network configuration Continuing without network configuration ... * Starting network configuration daemon wicd [OK] ...
Can I start wicd before waiting for network configuration? Should I abandon wicd and just edit some config files, and then this will all "just work?"
