SNS bug fix

August 04, 2010 — BarryK
I'm posting from Melbourne! Visiting my daughter for a few days. Using their ultra-fast cable Internet.

Simple Network Setup worked ok to connect to their home wireless network, but failed on reboot.

I brought my laptop with me, running Spup. SNS was configured to work with my own home network, and is supposed to work with additional networks. At bootup it is supposed to test each configuration and use whichever is active. The file /etc/simple_network_setup/connections has two lines in it, as it should, one for each network, my own and that of my daughter, but the script /usr/local/simple_network_setup/ that executes at bootup appears to be confused by the two entries.

I did a bit of work on the script and now it correctly detects my daughter's network at bootup. This fix applies to all recent Woof-built puppies. I have posted it here:
