Unhappy Difficult problem with wpa_supplicant and my usb wlan device (zd1211 chipset)


Hello!

I've got a very diffcult problem with my usb wireless device. If it is plugged in, the driver zd1211rw is loaded.
Code:
iwlist scanning
lo Interface doesn't support scanning
eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning
wmaster0 Interface doesn't support scanning
wlan0 Scan completed: 
      Cell 01: ..
The stick is working, but now I start the wpa_supplicant (the config file is ok).
Code:
wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -C/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
Now I get an error:
Code:
ioctl[SIOCSIWAUTH]: Operation not supported
Now a new
Code:
iwlist scanning
:
Code:
lo Interface doesn't support scanning
eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning
wmaster0 Interface doesn't support scanning
wlan0 Interface doesn't support scanning: Network is down.
My distribution is Slackware Current, buth I've got the same difficult problem with openSUSE 11.0

Any idea?

Best Regards
Christian

BTW: With Kernel 2.6.24.5 everything works fine (Slackware 12.1), gnewsense (Kernel 2.6.24), it works, too.
With Suse 11.0 (Kernel 2.6.25.18) it crashes, with Slackware Current /(Kernel 2.6.27.6), it crashes, too.

Has anything changed in this new kernels (the driver zd1211rw is part of linux)

Solved, my script to start the device contained the old device name (kernels =< 2.6.24).
