Wifi port issue (all works except the backend)

 hey, am having a small problem with porting wifi to a my device.

This is my config:

wifi.c (in libhardware_legacy)
    static const char IFACE_DIR[]           = "/data/misc/wifi/
    static const char SUPP_CONFIG_TEMPLATE[]= "/system/etc/wifi/
    static const char SUPP_CONFIG_FILE[]    = "/data/misc/wifi/


    mkdir /data/misc/wifi 0770 wifi wifi
    chmod 0770 /data/misc/wifi
    chmod 0660 /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf
    chown wifi wifi /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf

    mkdir /system/etc/wifi 0770 wifi wifi
    chmod 0770 /system/etc/wifi
    chmod 0660 /system/etc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf
    chown wifi wifi /system/etc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf

    # wpa_supplicant socket (unix socket mode)
    mkdir /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant 0771 wifi wifi
    chmod 0771 /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant
    chown wifi wifi /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant

    service wpa_supplicant /system/bin/wpa_supplicant -dd -Dwext -
ieth0 -c /system/etc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf
    group system wifi inet


- Wifi driver/module loads properly (wifi.c, dmesg, iwconfig say so)
- Logcat reports:
    WifiHW: Unable to open connection to supplicant on "eth0": No such
file or directory (~ 4 times then unloads wifi)
- Manually loading the driver/module and
    > running wpa_supplicant (as the service above) gives not errors &
proper logcat
        although it does make this dmesg entry:
            <4>[735, wpa_supplicant] [ 1479.081526] Enter
            <4>[735, wpa_supplicant] [ 1479.081567] Exited

    > running 'wpa_cli -p /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant' gives
        Selected interface 'eth0'
        Could not connect to wpa_supplicant - re-trying
    and forever remains this way

    > running 'iwlist scan' works and shows wi-fi networks

My guess would be that my permissions are wrong, but i have been
double checking with 'ls -l' and they seem ok.
The wpa_supplimentary socket 'eth0' does get created so it exists.
My guess would be that the android wifi backend runs as a specific
user other than wifi!?

1. What is Mediaplayer.[..] onBufferingUpdate actually telling me?

Hi all

I'm trying to play streamed mp3 from a remote source. basically it
works, but the behaviour of the bufferingupdate listener is a riddle
to me. I either get no calls at all, or updates like 1% , 2% then
nothing more. music is playing already, but the buffering never goes
to 100%.  which i think is the cause for getting "unknown mediaplayer
errors" after calling pause/stop and then start again.

so, ??? ideas ??



2. Best way to format text on android surface?

I want to have more control over the display of text on a surface than I know 
how to do.

I want to be able to zoom in and out, scroll vertically and horizontally, and 
use different size fonts.

Would I do this with RelativeLayout or is there a better way?

Is there an example code somewhere that shows how to do some or all of this?

I expect that the profusion of devices entering the market this fall will 
increase the need to adjust layouts to multiple screen sizes.  So I would like 
to avoid fixed placement to specific screen locations.

What I am seeking here is an idea how to approach this problem in Android.
