Description Dave Olsthoorn 2021-07-19 13:07:54 UTC
Description of problem:
When connecting to a network with 802.11r enabled, the client-side support for it should be optional. wpa_supplicant still tries to connect as if the card supports 802.11r however, this results in a connection failure

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

How reproducible:
Connect a card which does not support 802.11r to a network which does support 802.11r.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup network with 802.11r enabled
2. connect to network with a client with hardware which does not support 802.11r

Actual results:
connection failre

Expected results:
Established connection

Additional info:
Upstream have fixed this, but not had a release since. I have a pull-request open to include the patch which fixes this behavior in the package:
