I'm using the rt2x00-cvs package from UNSTABLE.
My /etc/rc.conf loads the 80211, rc80211_simple and rt2500pci kernel modules at boot time as required.
Everything works fine with my ADSL modem/router's security disabled.
However, when I enable WPA-PSK and try using wpa_supplicant, I get a kernel panic.
This is odd as when I first installed the rt2x00-cvs package I got wpa_supplicant working via command line configuration and I was connected to the internet. When I rebooted, the kernel panics started to happen.
This is what happens after reboot:
[root@thinkpad ~]# iwconfig wlan0 mode managed essid ShagNet channel 10 [root@thinkpad ~]# ifconfig wlan0 up Disabling IRQ #11 [root@thinkpad ~]# wpa_supplicant -D wext -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf : : : kernel panic (blah blah blah)
Does the 'disabling IRQ' message have anything to do with things? I didn't come up when I was successful with wpa_supplicant at the CLI (just after installing the rt2x00-cvs package and before reboot).
Is there anyway I can capture the kernel panic information as it scrolls off the screen? I tried appending '-dddd' to the wpa_supplicant command above, but that didn't work. I also tried directing the command output to a text file but, again, that didn't work.
I'm kinda stumped and hoped someone could help me.
Should I have put this in the 'Kernel' forum? If so, could a mod please move this post for me?
Thanks in advance.
