@Prototik this is the way~!


I want to switch to iwd by use this package, because the builtin wpa_supplicant can not manage a hotspot with password to work

iwd works with hotspot with password, (but failed to start a 5G hotspot ,while wpa_supplicant works)

it's wired that they indifferent with the bug of wpa_supplicant ...

@ihipop that's caused by iwd itself to avoid race condition, see

@cherkaba are you using networkmanager-iwd package from AUR? It causes that problems and not required for this overlay (that's purpose of overlay to keep default networkmanager, but force to use iwd).

Revert back to default NetworkManager (with something like pacman -Syu networkmanager libnm) and then install this package.

After that you can easily delete wpa_supplicant package if no one more uses it.

There seems to be a bug in the PKGBUILD:

NM service is NetworkManager.service (with capital N and M`)

so there must be

install -Dm644 "$srcdir/50-iwd.conf" -t "$pkgdir/usr/lib/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service.d"

instead of

install -Dm644 "$srcdir/50-iwd.conf" -t "$pkgdir/usr/lib/systemd/system/networkmanager.service.d"

Note after installing this package you can safely remove wpa_supplicant (if no other package uses it of course).
