Hello,

I use xsupplicant 1.2.4 from Debian testing. I use svn version 3659.

Card identify itself fine:

But when I call xsupplicant I getts into dmesg:

ath0: unknown pairwise cipher 0
ath0: unknown group cipher 0

xsupplicant informs:

notas:/usr/include# ifconfig ath0 up; xsupplicant -c /home/cijoml/work/wpa-psk-example.conf -i ath0 -f -w
Card reported capabilitites : WEP40 WEP104 WPA WPA2 TKIP CCMPNo configuration information for network "(null)" found.  Using default.
Your card is currently set for wireless network "".  Looking for a config.
Couldn't build a config for ESSID !
Scanning for wireless networks ...
CIJOML-3 is WPA/WPA2 capable. WPA/WPA2 is enabled on this connection.
Error changing setting for 'pairwise cipher'! It is possible that your driver does not support the needed functionality.
Couldn't set pairwise cipher.
Error changing setting for 'group cipher'! It is possible that your driver does not support the needed functionality.
Couldn't set group cipher.

I can't use wpa_supplicant because bug at hostap.epitest.fi/bugz/show_bug.cgi?id=265

Marking blocker, because encryption handshake doesn't work for me...

Thanks a lot for help!

Michal
