I can't connect with wpa_supplicant. I have tried this with THREE different models of wifi cards, so I'm sure this is not a hardware issue.

Code:
root@gentoolaptop / # wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -M -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant-nl80211-wlp2s0.conf

Gooberpatrol66,

That dmesg usually means you have several things fighting to control wlan0. wpa_supplicant obeys the last command it received.
You may have at most, one network controller sending commands to wpa_supplicant.

The first thing to do is to look at your started services and stop everything that can control wlan0.
Reboot and check tha wlan0 does not attempt to start.
That proves that noting is starting wpa_supplicant.

Choose one network managing tool and start it.

It should all work now.

Gooberpatrol66,

dhcpcd.service can control wpa_supplicant.

I suspect that systemd-networkd.service can too but I'm not a systemd user.

Is there some way to explicitly check what's driving it?
