    Hi,
    I’m having trouble trying to get my AR9580 working on ZeroShell. I got the subscription so I could update to the newer kernel (3.14.21-ZS) as I was having issues getting hostapd to configure the adaptor. It was throwing this error:

    Hardware does not support configured mode
    WLAN00: IEEE 802.11 Hardware does not support configured mode (1) (hw_mode in hostapd.conf)
    Could not select hw_mode and channel. (-2)
    WLAN00: Unable to setup interface.

    I noticed that hostapd is still version 1.0 while the latest is at 2.3 and wondering if this might be the cause of my issues. I also noticed this in dmesg:

    It still happens on the newer kernel so I think it might be hostapd been out of date.

    I was unable to find a developers section on how I could contribute a fix. What’s the general process for building apps for a ZeroShell distribution? Should I just install gcc on the device?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
