Description Zack Cerza 2007-09-27 12:57:02 EDT
Description of problem:
Since it supported WPA at all, NetworkManager allowed me to enter a passphrase
for my WPA2 (AES PSK) access point. It no longer allows that. That is the only
type of WPA authentication my AP will do, so people like me effectively don't
have WPA support anymore.

Sorry if this is a duplicate; I didn't see anything similar in my query.

Comment 1 Warren Togami 2007-09-27 13:04:23 EDT
Currently it accepts only hex representations of the passphrase.  Please use
/usr/sbin/wpa_passphrase to generate one.
Comment 2 Zack Cerza 2007-09-27 13:19:27 EDT
Now the dialog is 0x0, so I can't :(
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2007-09-27 13:47:56 EDT
It can't be 0x0, X does not allow windows to go smaller than 1x1.
Comment 4 Zack Cerza 2007-09-27 14:05:08 EDT
Well, whatever it is, it's tiny, and is not resizeable. It appears to have no

Warren, the generated hex key does not work.
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2007-09-27 14:07:50 EDT
What's your wpa_supplicant log look like?
Comment 6 Zack Cerza 2007-09-27 14:12:17 EDT
Was just getting that information... nothing is put into
/var/log/wpa_supplicant.log. I see lines like:

No network configuration found for the current AP
CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED - Disconnect event - remove keys

But they are from hours ago. All I see in /var/log/messages when using the hex
key fails is:

NetworkManager: <info>  Activation (wlan0/wireless): association took too long,
asking for new key.
Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2007-09-28 14:38:47 EDT
Committed support for wpa passphrase support to upstream svn.
Comment 8 Zack Cerza 2007-09-28 15:10:15 EDT
Comment 9 Dan Williams 2007-09-29 21:35:22 EDT
Got pushed out in svn2914; please verify and close?
Comment 10 Jeremy Katz 2007-10-01 10:18:24 EDT
Zack tested my local build and said it worked for
Comment 11 Zack Cerza 2007-10-01 11:22:35 EDT
Jeremy's local build did work; I'll close this when I can verify the koji-built
Comment 12 Will Woods 2007-10-07 16:15:39 EDT
NM svn2914 is public in rawhide now. Can you confirm that this is fixed and
close the bug if so?
Comment 13 Zack Cerza 2007-10-08 12:36:27 EDT
Oops! Yeah, it's fixed.
