[Olsr-dev] Building on Android

one more. The android settings applet and GUI ignores IBSS/Ad Hoc networks
(does not show detected IBSS ESSIDs nor let you join into IBSS). Just in case
you have not coped with this, here are some tips (rooted mobile is
- the networking stack is controlled by wpa-supplicant which runs below the
GUI. That background daemon can handle IBSS if you instruct it to do so. E.g.
needs a special scanning mode to search & join an IBSS. If wpa_supplicant
joins an IBSS, the GUI shows this but does not interfere. So it's possible to
join an IBSS if you can convince wpa_supplicant to do that.
- There is a command line interface to interact with wpa_supplicant named
"wpa_cli". wpa_cli uses a named pipe to communicate. On my samsung galaxy, the
pipe is located somewhere under /data/misc/wifi which may be changed on your
mobile phone to other location.
[blabla. I stop here, because while googling I stumble across a page that
nicely summarizes this here: http://www.olsr.org/?q=olsr_on_android
