There's probably a MUCH more elgant way to solve this, but basically, i have a terribly minimal ubuntu system that connects to a wireless network. At the moment i'm using a script that calls wpa supplicant and dhclient, to connect. I'd like to have this automatic - but i've had no luck with /etc/network/interfaces, or getting the script i use to run on boot.
A working solution from either approach would be 'correct'. Using network manager isn't really what i want, so that's out, and i will not need roaming. the config file for wpa_supplicant works, as does the whole setup when run from terminal.
