Bug#592943: still no network with 2.6.38 from squeeze-backports
I just tried the 2.6.38 kernel in squeeze-backports, to no avail.
From http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/orinoco I learned that
this is a known issue, and that I should set the wpa_supplicant
parameter ap_scan to 2.
However I can only do that if I stop using networkmanager, because
ignores the wpa_supplicant conf files.
So I guess I could start trying out alternatives to networkmanager, but I
don't really like the idea. First, nm is the default and I would expect
it to just work. Secondly the machine in question is not mine, and I'd
rather not fool around with it too much. I am stuck: is this a kernel bug?
A nm bug? Will someone with more skills than me fix this properly sometime
in the future? Can I help?
Thanks for your time,
