    I’ve tried IWD last week on a Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W, but it seems to crash during the connecting step. Going to give it another try with the new version.

    I really like the configuration simplicity compared to wpa_supplicant. It looks promising.


    EDIT: Just tried the new version, it works like a charm! I still get an error about "CMD_SET_CQM failed: Operation not supported", but this time it just connects without crashing the daemon.

      No issue with that here. The only issue I have is that it won't automatically connect to a network, so I have to click the Connect button every time I lose connection.

      I've also tried ConnMan in the past, but I'm still unsure whether it's any better than NetworkManager. Can anyone tell me if it's worth trying again?

        It is a lot less bloated than nm last time I checked, so that is already a win.

          Michael Typos in the last paragraph:
          Holtmann also released IWB 1.23 as their WPA_Supplicant alternative. WPA_Supplicant 1.23 is a smaller release with just seeing fixes around handling handshake offloading and at_console/D-Bus policy handling. IWD 1.23 is available from its kernel.org repo.

            I was actually talking about the workings, the stability, etc., but I agree that less bloated is a win.
