    I'm using Fedora16 and I'm trying to set up NetworkManager to connect
to a wlan on startup via /etc/sysconfig/network-scrip/ifcfg-wlan0 or
/etc/sysconfig/network-scrip/ifcfg-<ESSID>.  It seems the settings in
/etc/sysconfig/wpa_supplicant are ignored if wpa_supplicant is managed
by the NetworkManager,but I don't see any option to pass the -D<driver>
option to wpa_supplicant.

Correct, the settings in /etc/sysconfig/wpa_supplicant can be harmful
when NetworkManager is used, because NetworkManager figures out whether
to use the wext, nl80211, or wired driver as appropriate.  What's the
reason you want to use a specific supplicant driver?


Simply the observation that wpa_supplicant fails to associate when
not using -Dwext

What wifi kernel driver?

I got the source rpm at hand. If someone points me to the position
where the correct driver gets determined I can patch it.
