Wishlist: Allow extra options for wpa_supplicant to be specified
Declined for 1.6 by Adam Blackburn
The reason I am using wicd is because I had no luck with NetworkManager getting to connect to wireless networks protected by wpa. During my research I have found that when running wpa_supplicant interactively (i.e. specifying -d and removing -B flag) it is able to connect to the network. I traced the problem to some timing issue between wpa_supplicant and the wifi card driver. The relevant thing is that if wpa_supplicant gets run with a low nice value (I'm using -19), it just works. This got me to changing /usr/lib/
It would be nice if there would be an (advanced) option that describes how to launch these tools, or at least to be able to specify extra options (like -d) to them.
