Title: 802.1x authentication on wired network using YaST via
wpa_supplicant

openSUSE-11.2: New
Priority
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Marius Tomaschewski <mt@xxxxxxxxxx>
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Some networks using 802.1x authentication on metallic Ethernet and I
think it would be cool have a possibility, handle this connection type
using YaST.
The major problem to support this is that the wpa_supplicant is in
/usr/sbin; it seems also to be difficult to move it to /sbin because of
all the libs the wpa_supplicant is using.
What would be required, is to extent the "supported_on_localfs"
function to check this and start the interface in remotefs flow when
802.1x is enabled. That is, using remotefs on 802.1x authenticated
interfaces would be not possible -- same as with NetworkManager.

+ Discussion:
+ #2: Holger Dyroff <hd@xxxxxxxxxx> (2008-11-04 09:16:58)
+ Is this related/duplicate to 305353 or something else?
