I've had second thoughts about rolling forward to 0.7.2 yet because of the
changes throughout the API, but I'm having issues with 0.6.9 built from
Ubuntu-supplied source. I got to compile and it runs with
CONFIG_CTRL_IFACE=y, as does wpa_cli, but when I add the -u option to my
command line it gives me its help screen and refuses to run. Without that
option, the DBus refuses to work which makes it all moot.
I can get along without wpa_cli -- I was just using it for monitoring --
but I need DBus. The prebuilt package seems to give me both, but I can't
The -u option is in the usage: line but not in the options: of the help
message, so I'm thinking I don't have a .config option set correctly? The
README talks about -u but there is nothing mentioned in it about any config
file options. The command line simply fails when u is added and succeeds
when it is not... but without DBus.
Here's my Exec line from the .service file:
Exec=/usr/local/sbin/wpa_supplicant -Bu -Dwext -iwlan0
... and here's my .config:
I don't need all of those options; I just tossed the ones that caused it
to fail to compile.
