Hello,

I'm trying to get wpa_supplicant to work and I'm running into some trouble.

First this is what I did so far:

I build the linux kernel with the libertas driver. When I boot this kernel I
can do a AP scan and connect to a AP successfull.
Now I want to use wpa_supplicant. I have build the package and started the
wpa_supplicant with the following command:

/system/bin/wpa_supplicant -dd -t -Dwext -ieth0
-c/data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf -g/data/system/wpa_supplicant/socket

The wpa_supplicant process is running and it start scanning every few
seconds.

Now I tryed to connect with wpa_cli:

wpa_cli -p/data/system/wpa_supplicant/

This gives me the following error:

Selected interface 'socket'
Warning: Failed to attach to wpa_supplicant.

Any idea why the attach fails? And how I can make it work?

Kind regards,

Peter
