netcfg v2.5 in [testing] - auto wireless configuration has changed

In netcfg 2.5 the configuration options for auto wireless have changed. netcfg 2.5 rc1 is in [testing] currently.

The new automatic connection has proper roaming support and will prove more reliable than the old setup - particularly with more complicated wireless configurations.

To migrate to the new automatic wireless setup:

  1. pacman -S testing/wpa_actiond
  2. Set WIRELESS_INTERFACE="" to your wireless interface in /etc/rc.conf. For example WIRELESS_INTERFACE="wlan0"
  3. Add net-auto-wireless to your DAEMONS=() array.

There are also some very minor configuration changes that will only affect a small number, these are detailed here:
