#15658 new defect

A version of hostapd with full debug support is not included.

Reported by: tim@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


In order to reduce the size of the binaries the default hostapd has had debugging disabled.

However, this makes debugging problems with hostapd or the underlying drivers significantly more difficult.

Some possible solutions would be:

  1. Remove the patch added by #8847
  1. Also build hostapd-debug and wpad-debug packages which builds with full debugging (i.e. doesn't include the modifications which disable the debugging functionality).

Also the user is currently able to select debugging levels which are in-fact disabled in hostapd (e.g. if the user does "uci set wireless.radio0.log_level=0"
) - hostapd should complain and refuse to start-up in that case (and tell the user to install the relevant -debug package).
