Need a version 0.6.x hostapd in the repositories, now everything's moved to ath5k and ath9k drivers.
My current state of knowledge doesn't make me able to understand your request, could you give me some light ?
Now the atheros wireless drivers have moved from madwifi to ath*k in kernel drivers, you can't start an access point without a 0.6.x version of hostapd, the host Ap daemon. The newest version in repositories is hostapd-0.5.8-13.fc12.x86_64
The 0.6 versions are marked as stable. Their web-page is http://hostap.epitest.fi/hostapd/
An RPM of this would be very useful. I'm trying to build one myself.
There is a spec file here; http://sites.google.com/site/mclroy/hostapd/hostapd-spec
hm I think you have probably an interesting point, but really, really, really, would like to know the link between Atheros chipset, hostap and primer3  against which you filled this bug.
By the way, hostapd is NOT in the official repositories. This bug report is nonsense.
Yeah, I just noticed that, and realised that I got it from atrpms. I've filed a report there. There would seem to be no reason that hostapd is not in the Core Fedora repositories. They seem to have given up on maintaining it as their last bug report is dated 2007.
Finding out why it isn't here would be interesting, I'm just going to find out about primer3.
I don't think this is nonsense, more a request for a feature in the repositories. I've found a spec file, as stated, but am having trouble building it. I'm trying to learn now.
Could you show me why Primer3 might be relevant please Pierre?
Well you are filling a bug against primer3...
I would like you to show me how hostpad is relevant to primer3. That's my question since the beginning...
Damn, my apologies. I didn't realise.
Shall I close this as notabug, or do you reassign it ?
Close it, I'll try and find the Future Features part. Thanks, and apologies.
