atheros card and wpa_supplicant
I managed to patch the source tree with the latest patch to cbb, and
now the system boots *WITH* the atheros card left in.
I then compiled the atheros driver, and having loaded all the required
modules the card is definitely detected and I see the power light turn
on - it obviosuly probes and attaches, and it is listed under ifconfig
as ath0. So that part I guess is sucess.
I thenattempted to get wpa working, and things fell apart a bit. I
made sure i used the same wpa_supplicant.conf as i had done in FreeBSD
6, it specifies things like the ssid, WPA-PSK, scan_ssid = 1 and
obviously the psk itself.
I ran the build supplicant with this config file, and it said:
pcap_open_live: BIOCSETIF: ath0: Network is down
I turned on debugging output, and i saw masses of stuff about EAPOL
and it not getting keys, and I assume that means the supplicant was
for some reason starting in the wrong mode.
At this point I am not sure what else to do, and help would be appreciated.
Thanks, Alex J Burke.
