Hi johnbanks

Thanks for the tip

Unfortunately, my hostapd.conf file only contains the information as recommended by Frank in the howto on page 2 of this thread, so nothing extra to comment out :(

Here is the output from:

/usr/bin/hostapd -dd /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf

Hi Joe90,

what is the output from:
Code: Select all
systemctl status dnsmasq
?

Please also post your debug data.

Frank

debug data from hostapd in my previous post.

output (hand typed) from
Code: Select all
systemctl status dnsmasq


Code: Select all
* dnsmasq.service - A lightweight DHCP and caching DNS server
  Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/dnsmasq.service; disabled)
  Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Thu 1970-01-01 01:00:00:42; 1s ago
     Docs: man:dnsmasq(8)
  Process: 600 ExecStartPre=/usr/bin/dnsmasq --test (code=exited, status=127)



Observation:

On reboot the AP appears to come up, but as soon as i test the hostapd file it kills the AP. How to test status of AP/hostapd and how to stop hostapd to try again?

After a fresh reboot running:
Code: Select all
systemctl status hostapd


Shows much the same as for dnsmasq although under Active it says "active (running)" and gives a Main PID : 597 (hostapd)

Thought I would also try running:

Code: Select all
/usr/bin/dnsmaq


This returned:

Code: Select all
/usr/bin/dnsmasq: error while loading shared libraries: libnettle.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Am I missing a dependency somewhere?

Hi Joe90,

Just for reference. You are trying this on a RP1, right?

/usr/bin/dnsmasq: error while loading shared libraries: libnettle.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This is due to a version conflict.
Please post the output from:
Code: Select all
find / -name libnettle*

Updating nettle may cause other issues.

Oops!!

ran
Code: Select all
pacman -S nettle


which updated nettle and on repeating a run of dnsmasq I get a new dependency error with libdbus-1. Running pacman against this there appears to be some dependency conflict between dbus and libdbus :(

Might have to start over?

Output (now) from find/ -name libnettle:
Code: Select all
/usr/lib/libnettle.so
/usr/lib/libnettle.so.6.2
/usr/lib/libnettle.so.6



To confirm hardware:

Raspberry Pi Model B 756-8308
Ralink RT5370 wifi dongle

So is that it, have I taken an RPi Model B as far as it will go on this one? dnsmasq seems to be the issue?

Hi Joe90,

dnsmasq seems to be the issue?

Yes, dnsmasq on the RP1 image is the problem.

The RP1 image is fairly old and has to be updated.
On all the newer images (platforms) it works without problems.

Hi Joe90,

it's not a dnsmasq issue.
The problem is the old (not up to date) Arch Linux installation.
