wpasupplicant - Client support for WPA and WPA2 (IEEE 802.11i)
wpasupplicant (0.5.4-5) unstable; urgency=low
* STDIN was not given to external mapping script correctly. Use the power of
eval to fix the issue. [wpa_action.sh]
* Fix stupid debian/control error: duplicate Suggests fields.
wpasupplicant (0.5.4-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Add support to wpa_action.sh and ifupdown.sh for allowing external mapping
logic to be used as opposed to the id_str logic. Thanks to Felix Homman
for the great insight while implementing this feature.
* Add a timeout loop of max 60s when waiting for an action to finish.
* Minor cleanups wrt code comments and function placement in ifupdown.sh.
* Suggest guessnet, now that it can directly "plug in" to wpa_action. Also
demote iproute from Recommends to Suggests, it is not important by any
means and was only added to honour a wishlist request.
* Prepare for ctrl_interface socket changes in 0.5.5. It can be provided by
'DIR=foo GID=bar' or 'ctrl_interface=foo' in wpa_supplicant.conf. Our sed
check for this path in ifupdown.sh should now support both alternatives.
* Move LOCKFILE and LOGFILE into WPA_ namespace. [wpa_action.sh]
* Use semi-colon instead of comma for verbose output as that seems to be a
standard among many different applications.
wpasupplicant (0.5.4-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Further optimisation of ifupdown.sh, use return values in
init_wpa_supplicant() to dictate if further commands should follow, rather
than exiting immediately.
* Standardize echo'ing in ifupdown.sh. Add a wpa_msg() function to take care
of "verbose|action|stdout|stderr" messages.
* Add a 5 second timeout loop to init_wpa_supplicant() that waits for the
ctrl_interface socket to be established before allowing wpa_cli to launch,
and avoid a race condition. This means other functions no longer need to
test for existance of the ctrl_interface socket. [ifupdown.sh]
* Rename WPA_DRIVER to WPA_SUP_DRIVER to conform with name scheme of other
similar variables. [ifupdown.sh]
* Add (untested) wpa-bridge support to ifupdown.sh. This is an experimental
* Major refactoring of wpa_action.sh, with all related commands put into
independent shell functions.
* Improve feedback from wpa_action.sh when used interactively. Give usage
statement instead of simply returning "insufficient parameters".
* 'wpa_action reload' is logged after the action. It is called interactively,
and should also give interactive feedback. Same for 'wpa_action stop'.
* Remove superfluous check for /var/log, and put logging initialisation into
its own function, log_init(). [wpa_action.sh]
* Shut `ip addr flush dev "$IFACE" up', it almost always has nothing to flush.
* wpa-ifupdown init script now takes care of all interfaces while displaying
only one line.
* Don't set -e in wpa_action.sh. wpa-ifupdown script no longer takes exit
status into account, and I'd prefer to account for all possible avenues of
exit possible and log all encountered problems.
* Really fix #375599, by containing the CTRL_IFACE_DIR path in WPA_SUP_CONF
always, customised or not. The WPA_CTRL_IFACE socket was not being created
when ommitted from the wpa_supplicant.conf file.
* Add 'wpa-maint-debug' to enable set -x in ifupdown.sh, so that we can easy
track down vague problems.
* Slightly modify the way in which madwifi is activated. The default config
we apply does not activate madwifi by default any longer, it is done via
seperate patches; 20_include_madwifi modifies the .config file to activate
the driver_madwifi backend, and adds the required CFLAGS to find the
includes that are later added via one of the 21_madwifi*_includes patches.
* Update madwifi includes to that of the current offering in the debian
* Implement basic locking for wpa_action action's for when the user callable
"stop" action is executed while wpa_action is busy configuring the device.
The wpa_cli daemon is killed, then wpa_action waits for the current action
to finish gracefully before killing wpa_suppliant. This helps avoid
inconsistencies with ifupdown when volatile conditions are experienced as
part of the roaming setup (for example, driver problems causing connection
* Rename WPA_CLI_ACTFILE to WPA_CLI_LOCKFILE in ifupdown.sh.
* Condemn the use of wpa-action scripts:
- add NEWS item describing the superior alternative: wpa-roam
- remove example action scripts
- remove conf_wpa_cli() from ifupdown.sh
* Condense README.Debian and NEWS, so that they contain only relevant items,
and do not repeat the same information.
* Massive enhancement of README.modes, in an attempt to relay the
information about how this package, and wpa_supplicant work in debian with
the greatest of clarity.
* Harden tests for daemon pidfiles. No longer be satisfied that a pidfile
exists, but use start-stop-daemon to test its validity by sending a signal
0. Remove pidfiles that do not pass the test.
* Fix stupid $DAEMON_VEROSITY typo that was used consistently throughout
* Assoctiate "down" with the stop action of wpa_action.
* Thanks Marc Haber for reading over docs and notifying of some of the
- Fix typo "automattically" in README.modes.
- Remove bogus pre-up example from wpa_action(8) and README.modes
- Explain in more detail how /etc/wpa_supplicant/ifupdown.sh works in
* Add "The Logfile" section to README.modes.
* Add patch from upstream to fix writing of stakey, peerkey, and id_str
network configuration variables into the configuration file when
update_config=1 is set. Thanks to Felix for reporting.
