After making a recent update to iwl7260-ucode I find that the wpa_supplicant process is automatically starting on boot. This does not start the associated init.d script so I am forced to kill the process in order to make the standard precedence of ethernet work.

I don't see any trigger messages in my dmesg when I look nor do I see any clear indication of what is triggering it.

My question is, is there a good way to blacklist the process so that I can prevent this from happening? I am investigating whether or not a rollback will work but I would prefer to keep the updated firmware if at all possible.

It my be started by your network manager. Hence you might probably have some stuff in /etc/conf.d/net?

CrankyPenguin ... please provide the output of the following:

Code:
# rc-status --all | tr -s ' '
# egrep -v '(^#|^$)' /etc/rc.conf
# egrep -v '(^#|^$)' /etc/conf.d/net
# for p in {,e}udev dhcpcd ; do emerge -pvq $p ; done

best ... khay
