Revision as of 19:50, 6 February 2014

What have you done to the wpa_supplicant article?

As I'm a little short on time these days, I'll comment only on the two latest edits: [1], [2].

The default location for the dhcpcd's wpa_supplicant hook is /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf, not /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf (look at /usr/lib/dhcpcd/dhcpcd-hooks/10-wpa_supplicant, line 6). The second edit confirms that this was not an overlook, so I must ask where did you get this bullshit? I hope that the other edits I did not check (yet) are of much better quality.

Seeing that you changed the default config path across the entire article, I must point out that the path /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf was given intentionally - the user should not edit the bloated /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf provided by wpa_supplicant, and instead create a small, tailored config file - the path here does not really matter, since /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf is used as default by multiple networking managers ArchWiki just re-used this path.

If the user is supposed to specially create their own "/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf" file, the article does not make any mention of this necessity. If this is true, then add that information, and update as needed. The default location for the config file, where wpa_supplicant actually puts it, is in fact "/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf". "/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf" - by default - does not even exist.
The wpa_supplicant article is an unreadable mess, and I am trying to make it less of a mess. I doubt my other edits have gone unchecked by you, given that you've so quickly pounced on this.
Don't dismiss other editors as "bullshit". I expect this kind of trolling is how the article got into the state it's in.
