New Revision: 42775
Changeset: https://dev.haiku-os.org/changeset/42775

Modified:
   haiku/trunk/build/jam/OptionalPackages
Log:
Add the wpa_supplicant optional package. It should be stable and is working on
the limited set of hardware I could test it with.
By installing the wpa_supplicant one can now join WEP/WPA/WPA2 networks by
either selecting them in the network prefs/network status applet or using
"ifconfig <interface> join <network name> [password]". The wpa_supplicant opens a dialog asking for more details if it can't connect with the given information. Note that there is no way to automatically store that extra info right now, so it has to be provided on each join. The configuration can however be stored manually into the /boot/common/settings/network/wireless_networks config file.


Great! work fine with my "Intel Corporation Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300"

I'm able to connect to the network in my flat now. The uni network using a username and password login, EAP PEAP, MSCHAPv2 is that automatically supported by the supplicant? and just the gui is missing?

Thanks!
        Clemens
