Description Andreas Arens 2005-08-13 06:06:33 UTC
wpa_supplicant compiles fine, but fails with a segfault because of missing when used with ndiswrapper. 
Card used was an tiacx111 pci (TEW-423PI). Ndiswrapper worked fine, iwlist 
wlan0 found the ap.  

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a config that uses wpa-psk 
2. run wpa_supplicant -Dndiswrapper -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf 
Actual Results:  
received error: 
Failed to innitialize eapol state machines 
Segmentation fault. 

emerging opensc fixed the problem, wlan connection works fine.

Please attach the output of `emerge --info`, `ldd /sbin/wpa_supplicant` and - if
possible - the stack trace leading up to the segmentation fault.
Comment 2 Henrik Brix Andersen 2005-08-13 06:36:19 UTC
Do you have opensc_engine_path defined in your /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf file?
Comment 3 Henrik Brix Andersen 2005-08-13 06:36:43 UTC
Meant to close as NEEDINFO.

Comment 8 Andreas Arens 2005-09-10 02:56:38 UTC
Finally got back to the machine (which is at a remote site).

As you can see 'opensc_engine_path' is defined in the config file,
which might be superfluent, but that's the default config from the example.
Nevertheless it should not segfault.

True. Please report this upstream at
