Reviewing problem connecting to EAP-FAST wireless and wpasupplicant bug I see that it's possible to get it to work with regular wpa_supplicant and it's certainly possible. But for whatever reason, NetworkManager uses a version of wpa_supplicant not compiled for EAP-FAST support. Yet it's possible to recompile what is on the distros just fine.

My questions are as follows:

  1. Where does NM get it's wpa_supplicant executable (which path)?
  2. How hard is it to get NM to try to work?
  3. Any other suggestions or thoughts?
