Hi,

Well, I upgraded to r1453, the stable version of
madwifi-ng and upgraded to the development branch of
hostapd (hostap_0_5_1).  Authentification fails on the
wpa_supplicant side of things.

I get this error message

You may have another wpa_supplicant process already
running or the file was left by an unclean termination
of wpa_supplicant in which case you will need to
manually remove this file before starting
wpa_supplicant again.

*******end error message
It looks like wpa_supplicant is looking for the
crtl_interface at /var/run/wpa_supplicant.  However,
as the message suggests ctrl_interface is N/A for the
madwifi driver.

Any ideas here?
