Has anyone got these to work side by side as yet?

It seems that each one is always trying to grab control of the wifi
adapter - I tell NetworkManager to connect to my local AP - which it does,
then wpa disconnects it and scans itself. Same the other way around.

Is there any way to make these co-exist? I guess what would be really neat is to have WPA functionality in NetworkManger - then you get a nice little GUI to configure 802.1x.... Great for those EAP-TTLS access points out

Hi Steven,

NM 0.6 is out and it is supposed to do just that (use wpa_supplicant as
backend for WPA/WPA2)
Just wait a little to be included in the FC devel tree.

Oh cool! This is one thing I will definitely be putting through it's paces as I do a lot of roaming between wifi networks - some of which require EAP-TTLS which is authed against RADIUS (like the office) and others like home that is WEP free and if you're lucky will give you a public IP address (I like the idea of giving away net access!).
