Missing libnl-tiny dep for hostapd

Reported by: roberto.riggio@… Owned by: nbd
Priority: high Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: toolchain Version:
Keywords: Cc:


I've compiled the trunk version of openwrt for an x86 target with the madwifi driver and hostapd-mini. For some reason the build included the libnl-tiny dependency even if it is not needed.

As a result on the running image hostapd complains about a missing libnl-tiny library.

actually it seems that the bug happens if I first build an image with the ath5k driver and then i build another image with the madwifi driver.

So far I manage to work around the bug by removing the hostapd-mini build directory.

same problem with r19254. I built my firmware with madwifi builtin and ath5k as an external module.

please try the current version, there were some large changes since the last version that you tested.

comment:4 Changed 8 years ago by roberto.riggio@…

same error:

Jan 1 00:14:02 Wing sysinit: hostapd: can't load library ''

I'm using the wpad-mini package. It seems that switching packages madwifi->ath5k->madwifi creates the problem.
