600 might not be the best permission for wpa_supplicant.conf.
The psk is not read on my system when i chmod 600 this file.

Hi! Pity you don't give any other info. With a mode 600 for the configuration file, wpa_supplicant works perfectly on a lot of other computers. You should check what you are doing out of the ordinary. Do you try to run wpa_supplicant as non-root? The permission is set to prevent non-root users from 'stealing' the PSK.
