Default wpa_supplicant 0.6.8-1

wpa_supplicant declared the 0.6 branch as stable, changes compared to
the old version are:


- Disabled prism54, hostap, madwifi and IPW drivers, these should all be
obsolete and work with the "wext" driver. If any problems occur, I can
enable them again, but I think having only wext is enough.
- Enabled the new nl80211 driver. This has additional features over the
wext driver, like setting the country code (this driver currently only
works with compat-wireless or maybe 2.6.29 release candidates)

- Enabled readline support for wpa_cli
- Enabled WPS (WiFi protected setup), I don't know if anyone really
wants that, but it is there now.


wpa_supplicant_gui has also been considerably improved.

Please sign off.

Pierre noted that this version removes the "-w" option and thus breaks
netcfg. We need to patch netcfg to not use the -w option. James, can you
put an updated version to testing?


I also noticed I accidently built this with support for "atmel" and
"ndiswrapper" drivers, which are probably also obsolete. The wext driver
should at least cover ndiswrapper support.

Done.

Pushed 2.1.3, it's just 2.1.2 with only minor changes which all work
here, so it shouldn't need long in [testing].

I can't even find it in git. Just look where wpa_supplicant is called in
netcfg, it says "-wB" somewhere, replace that with "-B".

It's not in [testing] because I forgot to run the db script _again_....

oops.

Now I got the 2.1.3-2 pkg. WLAN does work well but I get a weird
warning:

[root@laptop64 andyrtr]# LANG=C /etc/rc.d/net-profiles restart
:: home.wlan down [DONE]
:: home.wlan up [BUSY]
chmod: cannot access `/tmp/wpa.wlan0': No such file or directory
[DONE]


any idea? is it caused by new netcfg or wpa_supplicant?

So what's going on here? Can we move this? Does netcfg work now?
