I am using gentoo and I would like to set up on open acces point to share my internet connection. I would like to use dnsmasq for this task.

I didn't anydocumentation on this except this page that doesn't work any more :

I am currently having this message :
 * Caching service dependencies ...   [ ok ]
 * Starting hostapd ...
Configuration file: /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf
Line 17: unknown configuration item ' driver'
Line 180: no authentication algorithms allowed
2 errors found in configuration file '/etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf' 

hostapd.conf contain,
line 17 :  driver=nl80211
line 180 : auth_algs=0
