I'd really like to test it, even tomorrow, but I need to know how to 
enable EAP_PEAP support first.
I've tried to copy src/dist/wpa_supplicant/defconfig to .config but 
without any result.
It seems like during the build phase .config is never read.
Here's an extract of my wpa_supplicant.conf:

network {

And here's the error wpa gives me:

# wpa_supplicant -i ral0 -Dbsd -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

Line 312: unknown EAP method 'PEAP'
You may need to add support for this EAP method during wpa_supplicant
build time configuration.
See README for more information.
Line 312: failed to parse eap 'PEAP'.
Line 319: failed to parse network block.
Failed to read read or parse configuration '/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf'.



I'm here only to improve my Inglisc.
