[solved] Wireless Network Manager woes
I've recently installed PC-BSD 9.0 on a presario C500 laptop.
Initially I was planning to have a dual boot with Linux Mint Debian, and everything was going well, untill I got to the wireless network configuration. In the Wireless manager, I could see networks available, but somehow I could not connect to any of them, so I tryied restarting the network (right click option) and... nothing: System freeze. I couldn't even get out of X to a console via Alt+F[x], so I had to turn it off and reboot, but the system never came up functional again.
I decided then to just wipe the drive and reinstall PC-BSD again but now as single OS. I got the system up and running, and now I decided to update the wireless drivers before doing anything else with the Wireless manager. This time, thing actually worked and I was able to connect to wireless networks without a problem until I needed to make some changes to a previously saved profile (change in security settings). The system froze completely again, leaving me no option but to hard shutdown and reboot.
Now, the system booted, but it left me on the console login (no X). I went single user mode, ran fsck to fix filesytem inconsistencies, and rebooted.
But no change. I can login at the console, and tryied starting X, but all I got was a black screen.
I'd really appreciate any hints.
