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.


Unable to load Wi-Fi driver

 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.

1. playing video without hardware OpenGL and overlay


I port android to platform without OpenGL and overlay support. I try to
play videos with MediaController and found that it use GL drawing which is
very slow.

I try to switch VideoView surface type to SURFACE_TYPE_NORMAL, but picture
disapears at all.

'mplayer -vo fbdev ...' in generic linux distribution gives good
performance, so the question is: Is there any way to get video playing
without hardware GL and overlay support?

May be I skip something in the high level API docs...
