|If you had WPA working in another distro, it's easy to copy your conf over to DSL, Again, though, the issue of getting it to work is a function the combination of tools available in DSL: kernel, driver, wireless extension, etc. I don't remember if there are any issues with wpa_supplicant like there are with other pieces of the puzzle.|
As far as DSL's future plans, please search the forums for "tiny core." From what Robert has written, it will not be called "DSL 5." It will be 2.6-based, but very barebones.
Yep, got that covered. Using the same wpa_supplicant.conf file from both Ubuntu and Puppy. Also just booted up DSL-n and found they don't have wpa_supplicant. No extensions either. Did some searching and found madwifi modules definitely work with kernel 2.4.x. I'm going to chalk it up as a loss. Did some reading on the Madwifi site and they're coming out with a version of the kernel modules that is completely open (no proprietary ath_hal module). Read more about it here. Hopefully that will find its way into DSL 5.
