Issued manually it works, but not onboot - wpa_supplicant IPW2200 Fedora8


Issued manually it works, but not onboot - wpa_supplicant IPW2200 Fedora8

Hi folks,
at 1st thanks for reading.

As short background Information.
I've got a Notebook (Latitude C400 with a IntelPro Wireless 2100 MiniPCI)
Fedora 8 installed, Gnome Desktop.
- NetworkManager and Dispatcher are - chkconfig off
- wpa_supplicant is 2,3,5 enabled.
I use DHCP with wpa_supplicant (and yes it works)
/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
Code:
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
ap_scan=1

network={
        ssid="my_network"
        proto=RSN
        key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
        pairwise=CCMP TKIP
        group=CCMP TKIP
        psk="secret_password"
}
For the working DHCP thing I've just did it like this
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1
.... onboot = no
.... dhcp = yes
and within the /etc/rc.local
I set the command
/sbin/ifup eth1
so wpa_supplicant connects to the wireless
and then rc.local issues the interface to be up and reads the ifcfg DHCP
Peng, Bummm it works.

So now the problem one
It's a Laitude D410 with a IntelPro Wireless 2200 MiniPCI
I did nearly the same but when the system starts
wpa_supplicant can't start cause it's arguing regarding some missing ctrl_iface_dbus thing. file missing or not found.

But when I issue the command manually
Code:
wpa_supplicant -d -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -ieth1 -Dwext
It works.

So I want to know how what file he is looking for?
Cause /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf is present... otherwise
my manually start of that wpa_su...... -i etc... won't also work.
But it does.


regards

and Thanks for your time

Wink ***solved***

Thanks for your answers...

**SOLVED**

But for all other as hint
dbus was the error, on a fresh installed Fedora 8 without any updates
you'll get the error that I described above.
This is an bug in the new Redhat/fedora Init System DBUS
with this version
dbus-1.1.2-7.fc8 it will work with the config as you see in this Post.
