wpa supplicant is not able to receive the wireless events(IWEVASSOCRES


I am facing problem with wireless events where the supplicant is not able to receive the wireless event(Assoc response IE) sent by driver.
This issue is happening mainly after the EAP session timeout. Prior to the session timeout, supplicant was able to receive all the wireless
events (like IWEVCUSTOM, IWEVASSOCRESPIE). On checking the supplicant logs, got to know that the netlink socket is not receiving any event from driver (no logs related to netlink_receive is coming). This issue is leading to segmentation fault when we kill the supplicant.
Note: AP is configured for EAP-PEAP.

What type of system is this running on? It may be that recent patches to wifi devices wpa software (due to KRACK) have caused this problem you're having. You can run supplicant with strace to see what's happening when it segfaults.

did you select allot of fancy netlink socket kernel options?

netlink has IP filtering and quos filterning. did you turn off all filtering before deciding the (wireless, usb, radio) is refusing to hand wpa_supp it's (i would thing ip packets)? (are you running a firewall?)
