|Dear gentoo community,
the following problem has been nagging me for quite some while: For using WLAN, I use the GUI WPA Supplicant Administration GUI. But very often, it cannot get the status from wpa_supplicant
(could not get status from wpa_supplicant), meaning that only every 2nd-3rd time the WLAN connection works ( after each trial I shutdown and reboot the computer). The weird thing now is that it is
absolutely unpredictable when this would happen and when not, although I have the impression that tendentially, the first time never works, but the second does often.
Also, when starting, I get a cryptic error message "Connection failed: File or folder not found" (cryptic, because I am not told anything more specific - so I do not know where to look or what connection failed or which file or folder not found).
Some while ago, everything actually worked fine, the problem occured out of the sudden and did not disappear after then.
Thanks in advance
