Hi,

I have met a few problems to get wpa working on my Gentoo. After upgrading madwifi to madwifi-ng (and recompiling the kernel), I can connect with :

Code:
# wpa_supplicant -Dmadwifi -iath0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
# dhcpcd ath0


But, if I try the net.ath0 script, I get this message : :cry:
Code:
/etc/init.d/net.ath0: line 34: /lib/rcscripts/net.modules.d/helpers.d/functions: No such file or directory
 * Starting
 *       no interface module has been loaded


Is there an ebuild or something I must install to be able to use this script ?

Thanks for your help,

Benjamin

You need the madwifi driver.
Try
Code:
emerge -s madwifi


Run
Quote:
etc-update
to see if that fixes the missing directories or
Code:
emerge baselayout
but SAVE YOUR /etc/fstab before you do etc-update.

In other threads this seems to have been caused by the recent update to baselayout to 1.12.4-r2.

The problem apparently lies in having /etc/init.d/net.ath0 as a separate file and not as a symlink to /etc/init.d/net.lo which the new baselayout requires.

It you delete net.ath0 and then create a symlink to net.lo as in
Code:
cd /etc/init.d
rm -f net.ath0
ln -s net.lo net.ath0
it should no longer use the old code which needed /lib/rcscripts/net.modules.d/helpers.d/functions and should work :)

Moved from Networking & Security to Duplicate Threads in favour of Missing /lib/rcsripts/net.modules.d [SOLVED].
