Description Aki Salminen 2012-12-13 14:22:30 UTC
Was unable to setup wlan with net-setup. Creating and setting up wpa_supplicant.conf manually worked as usual. Might be good idea that net-setup would set up also wpa or would say that it's only for wep etc.

I would even say that net-setup could be removed as it did create confusion not any solutions or usable output ( for me ).

Do we have any tool that can take care of the configuration of wpa?

no we don't and what I decided to do on the livedvd was to use wicd-curses which is pretty straightforward. I guess we should really get wpa* support in net-setup.

Here is a quick little patch I whipped up to add WPA{,2}-PSK support to net-setup

Whoops, obvious bugs that the setup is never saved to conf.d/net

I see no reference to a commit denoting the fix.

wpa2-ready net-setup is shipping on our installcds for a while now
