I'm trying to connect but wpa gui can not get status from wpa_supplicant.
The output of
Code:
wpa_supplicant -B -i interface -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

Code:
Successfully initialized wpa_supplicant
sendto: No such file or directory
Failed to register with wpa_priv
interface: Driver interface rejected driver_param '(null)'
sendmsg(cmd_socket): No such file or directory
sendmsg(cmd_socket): No such file or directory

As you can see wlo1 is only ethernet

cacatua ... nope, that is your wireless interface.

I suspect you're not providing 'wlo1', but the string 'interface':

Code:
# wpa_supplicant -B -iwlo1 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

... however, you really should be using either /etc/conf.d/wpa_supplicant.conf or /etc/conf.d/net

Disable USE="privsep" on wpa_supplicant.

HTH & best ... khay
