Hi all,

I already posted in the users list 
and got useful feedback - i.e. to ask here again :)

I try to setup OLSR on my Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.1.1. I had no 
success following the guide (http://www.olsr.org/?q=olsr_on_android), 
even though each command from step 3 to 8 returned successful, 
associating failed with "Association request to the driver failed" (you 
can find the log in the thread linked above).
My next approach was to use Debian on my phone and try to get my 
interface into ad-hoc mode with the aid of iwconfig. Unfortunately, 
iwconfig doesn't work properly, displaying "no wireless extensions" for 
Another approach I read in several forums is that I have to change the 
wpa_supplicant daemon so that it supports ad-hoc mode. I am not an 
expert on compiling and did not find a pre-built one for my device - but 
may this the only way to go?

Thanks in advance for any comments on that topic.
