WLAN configuration

There is lots of difference between distribution configurations. Today I finally fixed my sister's wlan configuration from pre-up-post-down-hax. I read about debian/ubuntu wpa_supplicant configuration, when one of my study pal was searching the correct way to do that. I found an article from Made of Bugs blog.

Debian way to do wpa_supplicant activation:
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-driver wext
wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf


Gentoo way (baselayout1) to do same thing:
config_wlan0=( "dhcp" )
modules_wlan0=( "wpa_supplicant" )
wpa_supplicant_wlan0="-Dwext"

Personally I like the gentoo way more.
