Hello everyone.
I am using hostapd on my gentoo machine to work as wireless router. Until recently it worked just as intended. But with one of the latest updates I have the issue, that wpa_supplicant is automatically started in daemon mode, even though it shouldn't.
In /etc/conf.d/net I allready tried adding
Code:
modules_wlp6s0="!wpa_supplicant !wireless"

But it is started nonetheless.
wpa_supplicant is also not in the bootscripts.
I tried adding only hostapd to the bootscripts - but wpa_supplicant gets started and so hostapd doesn't work as router.
Currently, if I want my machine to function as router, I have to manually run the following commands:
Code:

killall wpa_supplicant
/etc/init.d/hostapd start


Does anyone have an idea what mayhaps changed?

Thanks

Nadhor ...

you should probably provide the entire /etc/conf.d/net, 'rc-status default', and egrep '^[^#]' /etc/rc.conf, so we can see what services are started, and what provides, or needs, the 'net' target, and whether rc_depend_strict="YES" is set.

I suspect you may need something like the following (but what might have changed with openrc ITR I can't say) ...

/etc/rc.conf:
rc_dhcpcd_provide="!net"
rc_sshd_need="!net"

best ... khay

Hello khay,
thanks for your reply.
I tried your suggestions with
Code:
rc_dhcpcd_provide="!net"
rc_sshd_need="!net"

without success.
A little bit of further research (especially with rc-status) revealed that I was using NetworkManager - which I was unaware of. Meaning I was using NetworkManager and Netifrc at the same time, which until now didn't give any issues. But as explained on the gentoo-wiki page for https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/NetworkManager that can lead to unexpected behaviour.
Seems like I have to check my complete networksetup now to see how I can get out of the hole I dug myself. :-)

Regards.
