Wifi problem in artix

I installed artix openrc but i have a wifi problem.

It uses wpa supplicant for wifi management. I open wifi in wpa supplicant, then it shows wifis and closes in 5-10 seconds.

I tried installing wifi driver with file(broadcom-wl-dkms) but it didnt fixed it.

I cant find solution.

Please, help me!

This is the latest discussion about it

Since you are on artix openrc, maybe this is what you need, but i couldn't confirm

I find the solution.

This is a wpa supplicant bug. My laptop has bluetooth but when i open wifi wpa supplicant doesnt open bluetooth automatically. When i open bluetooth manually wifi works well.

Please ask the Artix folks for support.

I think not.

@bogdancovaciu gave you the solution in the second link he posted about the bug in wpa_supplicant. Why don't you go play your game of silly bug-ger on the Artix forum.

I will mark Bogdan's post as the solution.


Probably the OP never read my links. Anyway, it was your research that got me to it in the first place :slight_smile: :hugs:

Ya, both wpa_supplicant and NM are having bugs reported regularly with recent updates.

Of all the packages, in all the distros, in all the world (and she walks into mine), NM may be the most frequent problem-child I have ever experienced. Bar none. :frowning:

The thing that's strange is that it always seems to only affect a very small sub set of hardware. Just enough folks ti make it hard to diagnose what the problem is. Then to make it even worse wpa_supplicant bugs out at the same time.

I hate recommending downgrades but next to nobody wants to switch connection managers.
