Hi,

I'm new to Yocto Project/Embedded Linux. I had added hostapd recipe (https://layers.openembedded.org/layerindex/recipe/28409/) into my build image, and when I try to run "hostapd hostapd.conf" in terminal, I get the below error.

Configuration file: hostapd.conf
nl80211: Could not configure driver mode
nl80211: deinit ifname=wlan0 disabled_11b_rates=0
nl80211 driver initialization failed.
wlan0: interface state UNINITIALIZED->DISABLED
wlan0: AP-DISABLED
wlan0: CTRL-EVENT-TERMINATING
hostapd_free_hapd_data: Interface wlan0 wasn't started

I had also killed wpa_supplicant, but still I get same error. Kindly please help me with this issue.

Thanks & Regards,
VR.
