Description

hi there
i've just tackling around a wpa_supplicant script for /etc/rc.d/ so we can
start wpa_supplicant automatically.
here it is:
ftp://quantumachine.net/scripts/wpa_supplicant

you have to put this in your rc.conf:

wpa_supplicant_enable=YES
wpa_supplicant_flags="-i ifX -B -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf"
ifconfig_ifX="dhcp"

where ifX is your wifi interface, in my case ath0

TODO:
+ fix any bugs
+ wpa_supplicant timeout until it is COMPLETED

Hi,

What's wrong with ifconfig_ifx="WPA DHCP" ?

if you have followed this:

then you should now that this guide is for FreeBSD.

Hi,

Ok, It seems that this feature hasn't been ported to DFly.

Is there any real interest to change the behaviour described in this
paper ?

this behaviour needs less rc.conf configuration than my script, so if you
want to port it you are welcome.

I think this should be close since WPA support is not active
