Hi , 

I just reinstalled a 1.9 alpine linux on a alix board . Works perfectly . But only the wifi config stuff is missing 
Where are all the wonderful packages for making a wifi access point with emebbeded hardware (soekris , alix and more ? ) 

Or maybe I didn't find it in the docs . 

Can someone make me see the light ? 

Thanks in advance 

Nicolas

I think you are the first to ask for them. (well i think there was
someone else asking for hostapd but we didnt have his wifi drivers at
that point)

You could file a package request on http://bugs.alpinelinux.org with a
package description and url to source package. Or at least tell what
specific packages you are interested in. .. and help us test it after.

I have looked over the wpa_supplicant and wireless-tools in testing and
created a hostapd package.

Please tell us if its working, what needs to be fixed or error messages.

You need to add edge/packages/testing and possibly edge/packages/x11
repositories.

Thanks!
