I'm having some troubles using hostapd with a brand new Atheros AR5416-based
PCI wireless card.
When I run hostapd (built from git) I get the following output:
Configuration file: /etc/hostapd.conf
Failed to create interface mon.ath1.
nl80211 driver initialization failed.
rmdir[ctrl_interface]: No such file or directory
I've tracked it down to this call failing in nl80211_create_iface:
The libnl version on my system is 1.1 (latest from Fedora Core 9:
My kernel is from wireless-testing git (couple days old), patched with the
ath9k access point patches from Jouni (and Sujith), and with the
allow-ap-vlan-modes patch from Johannes.
Any help would be appreciated.
