wicd not writing to log?
For the first couple of months after installation, wicd wrote nice details to /var/log/
I ask because twice now, while running unattended updating a cloud server with occasional sensor data, the system loses access to the server, and when I try to SSH or VNC in to investigate, I'm ignored. But sniffing the network shows it is successfully requesting and receiving NTP updates... I doubt this has anything to do with wicd, but I'm digging for any log info I can get!
In the old logs, it looks like wicd does its own DHCP, or at least logged it in detail. I do notice in my router logs that there seem to be gaps in the DHCP renew sequence, and that recovery from the network problem involves a new DHCPDISCOVER instead of just the REQUEST/ACK.
Is there some way to probe into wicd historical events from the command line or python?
Can you help with this problem?
