#2040 closed defect (fixed) kills wpa-supplicant if more than one atheros interface is configured

Reported by: lschweiss Owned by: developers
Priority: high Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version:
Keywords: madwifi wpa wpa_supplicant Cc:


The disable_atheros function is called for once each device and kills wpa_supplicant when it should no longer.

The function should be called only once per execution of /sbin/wifi not once per device.

Figured out the proper fix. In the line:

grep ath /proc/$pid/cmdline >/dev/null && \

should read

grep $device /proc/$pid/cmdline >/dev/null && \

This makes it only disable the device for which it was called.

Scratch that fix. It's not that simple.

disable_atheros is passed devices such as wifi0 it needs to kill processes associated with ath0, etc.

We need to read the wifi # and apply that.
