* Sync wpa_supplicant man page with README changesJouni Malinen2012-04-211-111/+2
| | | | | | | | The man page source was not up-to-date with removed driver wrappers, so bring in the wpa_supplicant/README changes to make this somewhat closer to the current state. Signed-hostap: Jouni Malinen <j@w1.fi>

* Remove obsolete drivers wrappers: atmel, ndiswrapper, ipw, hermesJouni Malinen2011-01-301-28/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | There is no real reason to maintain these in the current development branch anymore. If someone really needs support for the obsolete driver interfaces, these can be found in older wpa_supplicant branches. driver_atmel.c - vendor-specific interface for ATMEL AT76C5XXx cards - for some old out-of-tree driver; not for the upstream atmel* drivers driver_ndiswrapper.c - vendor-specific interface for an out-of-tree driver - ndiswrapper should work with driver_wext.c, too driver_ipw.c - vendor-specific interface for old ipw2100/2200 driver - the upstream driver works with driver_wext.c (and does not work with the old interface) driver_hermes.c - vendor driver that was not even included in the main wpa_supplicant releases
* Allow multiple driver wrappers to be specified on command lineJouni Malinen2009-02-141-2/+11
| | | | | | For example, -Dnl80211,wext could be used to automatically select between nl80211 and wext. The first driver wrapper that is able to initialize the interface will be used.

* Add RoboSwitch driver interface for wpa_supplicantJouke Witteveen2008-11-182-1/+9
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Find attached the patch that creates a new driver: roboswitch. This driver adds support for wired authentication with a Broadcom RoboSwitch chipset. For example it is now possible to do wired authentication with a Linksys WRT54G router running OpenWRT. LIMITATIONS - At the moment the driver does not support the BCM5365 series (though adding it requires just some register tweaks). - The driver is also limited to Linux (this is a far more technical restriction). - In order to compile against a 2.4 series you need to edit include/linux/mii.h and change all references to "u16" in "__u16". I have submitted a patch upstream that will fix this in a future version of the 2.4 kernel. [These modifications (and more) are now included in the kernel source and can be found in versions 2.4.37-rc2 and up.] USAGE - Usage is similar to the wired driver. Choose the interfacename of the vlan that contains your desired authentication port on the router. This name must be formatted as <interface>.<vlan>, which is the default on all systems I know.
* wpa_gui-qt4: add support for starting in system tray onlyKel Modderman2008-10-011-0/+9
| | | | | | | Allow application to be started in the system tray only when started with the `-t' command line argument. Signed-off-by: Kel Modderman <kel@otaku42.de>
* man wpa_supplicant: Clearly state which options are given per interfacePavel Polischouk2008-06-181-10/+22
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | Documentation appeared a little vague about which options are global and which are tied to a particular interface. This leads to confusion when using certain combinations of options, e.g. the command "wpa_supplicant -c /etc/wpa_supplican.conf -u" will not do what is intuitively expected from it - it will not read the config file given with -c option because no -i option was given. This command is still valid because -u option is used. The wpa_supplicant running like this will also not listen on any control socket, because the socket file name is usually given in the config file. This command line also happens to be the default in Fedora 9. This patch does not try to change any behaviour, but rather document these nuances clearly.
* Explain not all driver backends will be compiled into wpa_supplicant binaryKel Modderman2008-03-311-1/+5
| | | | | | | Explain that wpa_supplicant supports a variety of drivers, but only a subset of them are chosen at compile time. Signed-off-by: Kel Modderman <kel@otaku42.de>
* Enhance manpage with use of emphasis instead of strong quoteKel Modderman2008-02-284-24/+25
| | | | | | | | | | | The Debian package checker "lintian" was making noise about wpa_supplicant.conf(5). It was caused by a line beginning with ', which is apparently not liked by man(1). I suggest the use of <emphasis>word</emphasis> where 'word' is used at the moment. Signed-off-by: Kel Modderman <kel@otaku42.de>
* Re-initialize hostapd/wpa_supplicant git repository based on 0.6.3 releaseJouni Malinen2008-02-289-0/+1802
