Description delleceste 2012-07-22 12:30:11 UTC
ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev ral0

ifconfig wlan0 ssid TP-LINK

ifconfig wlan0 up

wpa_supplicant -r wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

The machine completely freezes without printing anything on the system console.

The commands were given in single user mode exactly as described.

GENERIC kernel.

How-To-Repeat: The lines above always reproduce the problem.
The system console never prints any stack trace.
