atheros wifi and wpa-psk

is there any way to get a atheros card (madwifi) running with wpa-psk?

My last attempt was to reconfigure the wpa-supplicant package form AUR to include the madwifi drivers but I can't get it built.
perhaps anybody can help?

Thanks

Re: atheros wifi and wpa-psk

I could finally get it running by comiling wpa_supplicant by hand because the package of the aur is only for ipw cards.
if anybody is interested in details please contact me.

Re: atheros wifi and wpa-psk

here's a quick answer to your question:

You need to edit the config file in your wpa_supplicant build directory to point to your madwifi sources.

I'll assume that you've built madwifi with ABS and you are doing the same for wpa_supplicant. 

First make sure you have the madwifi sources.  They should be in /var/abs/local/madwifi/src/madwifi (or something to the like)

Then edit the config file in your wpa_supplicant build directory.
Uncomment CONFIG_DRIVER_MADWIFI=y

Next uncomment the line CFLAGS += -I../madwifi/wpa and change it to read:
CFLAGS += -I /var/abs/local/madwifi/src/madwifi

Then it should build with madwifi support.  You can also comment out ipw since you don't need it.
