I downloaded the Android source, compiled for "generic" product (with
Wpa_supplicant) and booted it on our target hardware.

I modified the default init.rc to include wpa_supplicant service.
service wpa_supplicant -D wext -i eth1 -c /system/etc/wpasup.conf

When the system booted, it can able to Associate with Access Point (verified
by looking into the log file of the Access Point).


Apart from above mentioned changes in init.rc, do I need to make further
modifications? If Yes, is there any documentation that explains the steps.

 In my wpasup.conf file, I didnt set ctrl_interface.

If I set ctrl_interface = /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant, wpa_supplicant
throws *chown[ctrl_interface]: Operation not permitted *error.
