Hello, finally my PC come back to SAV and I remade my complete installation of gentoo and I encounter a problem when I want to connect in wifi with wpa_cli:

Fulgurance ...

for wpa_cli to function there has to be a running wpa_supplicant, and the user has to be able to access the wpa_supplicant 'ctrl_interface', for this you need the following in wpa_supplicant.conf:

/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf:
ctrl_interface=DIR=/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=wheel

This will allow users in the 'wheel' group to access ctrl_interface.

Though I can't see from the above who is running wpa_cli I am assuming the user either isn't in the group specified, or GROUP isn't defined, if this isn't the case then it may be that wpa_supplicant isn't configured correctly (ie, the '-i<interface>, or '-D<driver>') so you should provide details of that confguration.

HTH & best ... khay

Fulgurance ... in which case you'll have to do as I suggested, and provide the configuration (ie, /etc/conf.d/wpa_supplicant or whatever parameters your passing to wpa_supplicant, and various other information relating to your wireless device/driver)

Code:
# lspci -nnkv | awk -v RS= '/(Ether|Network|802.11)/{print $0 "\n"}'
# egrep '(WEXT|(MAC|CFG|NL)80211)' /usr/src/linux/.config
# modinfo <your_wireless_driver>
# dmesg | grep -i firmware

You can also run wpa_supplicant in 'debug' mode, and provide (via pastebin) the log:

Code:
# wpa_supplicant -B -i<wireless_interface> -Dnl80211 -dd -f /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log
# su - <username>
$ wpa_cli -i<interface_name> status
$ wgetpaste /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log

best ... khay

Fulgurance ... there is your problem, I'm not sure what the error codes mean but it looks as though you're either missing firmware or the driver is builtin (=y) and no CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE is used. If the later then either add the firmware to the kernel or build as a module (=m).

Based on the source of that driver, it looks like those are standard errno codes, albeit following the kernel's quirky pattern of negation. If so, then -2 is ENOENT (No such file or directory) and -11 is EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable).

I already had this problem under archlinux, they are missing drivers for the QCA6174 (Qualcom Atheros), but normally the wifi worked anyway!
