Unhappy wpa_supplicant without madwifi support?


Why slackware 12 insists on shipping a wpa_supplicant without madwifi support? This is always a pain, because I could not figure how to compile it myself, it always fails the build
With slack 11, alien builds saved my ass, but now I need a slack12 package. Any help with this? :|

Install it yourself. Download the sources, get the SlackBuild here, run it and reboot. Worked right out of the box for me, and I have a custom kernel.

Errr I already did that, madwifi is compiled and working fine. My problem is with wpa_supplicant, because the original slackware package was build without madwifi support, so it fails when using madwifi.

Use the wpa_supplicant source and slackbuild from the slackware distribution (in the n series). Modify the slackbuild to point to your madwifi includes, then use the slackbuild to rebuild the package and install your new package.
