update hostapd to 0.6.3

comment:1 Changed 8 years ago by KanjiMonster

This updates hostapd to 0.6.3. Three of the four original patches are already included in 0.6.3. I don't know what for the last one is.

This is tested and works on an Asus wl500gP (brcm47xx-2.6) and seems to work the same way as the old version.

But as 0.6.3 is a development version, I don't know whether we should include it in a release. On the other hand, the current version isn't excactly a stable version either.

Freshly checked out r11744 (which already has the updated hostapd) does not build (brcm47xx-2.6 with b43 and hostapd)

It fails with:

In file included from /home/umiki/trunk/staging_dir/mipsel/usr/include/mac80211/linux/wireless.h:74,

from driver_nl80211.c:30:

/home/umiki/trunk/staging_dir/mipsel/usr/include/libnl/linux/if.h:120: error: redefinition of 'struct ifmap'
make[4]: * [driver_nl80211.o] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory `/home/umiki/trunk/build_dir/mipsel/hostapd-0.6.3/hostapd.default/hostapd'

It also produces lots of warnings like:

In file included from /home/umiki/trunk/staging_dir/mipsel/usr/include/mac80211/linux/wireless.h:74,

from driver_nl80211.c:30:

/home/umiki/trunk/staging_dir/mipsel/usr/include/libnl/linux/if.h:24:1: warning: "IFNAMSIZ" redefined

If hostapd is not selected it builds fine

Looks like this should fix that, could you try to use this patch?

comment:4 Changed 8 years ago by andrew@…

The one-liner noted by KanjiMonster means that it now builds fine for me.
