I have just been following the instructions set up here to make an access point out of my orange pi one which has the 4.9.4-sun8i dev kernels (they are not the problem). https://learn.adafru...nstall-software
When I begin the first test I get an error that is spit out by the interface I guess? (I'm relatively new to linux and am trying to get a hang of it)
Configuration file: /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf nl80211: Could not configure driver mode nl80211: deinit ifname=wlx40a5ef0eea56 disabled_11b_rates=0 nl80211 driver initialization failed. wlx40a5ef0eea56: interface state UNINITIALIZED->DISABLED wlx40a5ef0eea56: AP-DISABLED hostapd_free_hapd_data: Interface wlx40a5ef0eea56 wasn't started
My hostapd.conf file is also as follows, although it looks OK to me.
