Description idak 2009-12-18 12:56:23 EST
Description of problem:
Cannot access wifi (WPA-PSK) AP in booting

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup wpa_supplicant to use WPA-PSK
2. setup ifcfg-wlan0 with ONBOOT=yes

Actual results:
Cannot connect WPA-PSK Access Point

Expected results:
Should connect WPA-PSK Access Point

Additional info:
/etc/init.d/network depends on wpa_supplicant if ifcfg-wlan0 has ONBOOT=yes.
So network script needs to add "Required-Start" entry like the following
  # Provides: $network
+ # Required-Start: wpa_suplicant
  # Should-Start: iptables ip6tables
  # Short-Description: Bring up/down networking
  # Description: Bring up/down networking

If you want to use WPA, use NetworkManager.
