  • I have Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000

  • I installed hostapd from Ubuntu Software Center

  • When I run this command hostapd hostapd-minimal.conf I get this:

    root@tarek-PC:~# hostapd hostapd-minimal.conf
    Configuration file: hostapd-minimal.conf
    Line 2: invalid/unknown driver 'nl80211 '
    Line 4: unknown hw_mode 'g '
    2 errors found in configuration file 'hostapd-minimal.conf'

After doing make first I had this error:

driver_nl80211.c:25:26: warning: netlink/attr.h: No such file or directory

I solved it by installing libnl-1.0pre8

Now I have this error when doing make command:

../src/crypto/crypto_openssl.c:10:30: fatal error: openssl/opensslv.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make: *** [../src/crypto/crypto_openssl.o] Error 1

Can anyone help me with that error I am running Ubuntu 13.04?

You need to build, or obtain, a different copy of hostapd. The one you have has been built with the option CONFIG_DRIVER_NL80211 set to N, rather than Y.

There are simple and detailed instructions how to rebuild it here → Hostapd building instruction. Rebuild it with the option enabled. You may have to google for hostapd.2.0.tar.gz, but do exactly as it mentioned in link.

As for the follow-up question/error try to install this library libssl-dev using this command:

sudo apt-get install libssl-dev
