Hello all,
I've been trying for months to get my wifi working again. The issue I have is that versions of wpa_supplicant higher than 2.7 cannot connect to ANY wifi network. So, I've been sticking with wpa_supplicant-2.7-r1. Now, however, all versions before 2.9 have been removed from the portage tree. I managed to save an ebuild file and the source code for version 2.7, however I'm missing the patches...

Is there any place where I can acquire the "portage/emerge/gentoo" patches for old versions of software that recently got removed from the portage tree?

From the ::gentoo git repo. They are all there.

skiwarz,

Staying on old code is not really the answer.
Fix the problem so you get security updates.
