[PATCH] wpa-supplicant script
saw at online.de
Tue Jun 26 14:32:56 PDT 2007
the following work-in-slow-progress patch brings in some changes from
FreeBSD that will allow to bring up a wireless interface with:
ifconfig_ath0="up WPA DHCP"
That is, besides the special parameters WPA and DHCP, all normal
ifconfig parameters are possible in the ifconfig_... line now.
The patch also adds interface renaming via rc.conf, e.g.:
ifconfig_net0="DHCP media 10baseT/UTP"
Don't forget -p0 as it adds the wpa_supplicant rc script.
My work is eating most of my time at the moment so it's not the final
version. Some things to consider with this version:
* I haven't tested the pccard part at all.
* Without "up" in the ifconfig_... line WPA doesn't yet seem to work it
seems. Setting "DHCP polling" also didn't work last time I checked
(didn't yet test if it works with "up", though).
* FreeBSD has OpenBSD's dhclient so I had to comment out some stuff
(that uses -b which we don't have) in dhclient's rc script.
As I figure out these issues and find more stuff to add, I'll post
another patch later next week or so.
