Most of you know that Karmic Koala 9.10 released on the 29th October. I noticed during my test run with Alpha’s and Beta’s of Karmic that my use of wpa_supplicant as described in this article didn’t work any more.
The lines in /etc/network/interfaces have changed from:
wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf wpa-driver wext
pre-up wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -B post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant
Also if you where using :
wpa_supplicant -Dndiswrapper -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -B
then this now has to be changed to:
wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -B
Or you will get a “Unsupported driver ndiswrapper” error. I’m sure I will come across more that doesn’t work I will post the solutions as I find them.
Do you have a problem that you can’t seem to get fixed send me an e-mail or leave a comment here I will try to help you find a solution.
