hostapd 'make' fails -- fatal error: demangle.h


Hello Group,
I have gotten myself boxed in and cannot find a solution.

Running Slackware 14.0 x86
The slackbuilds.org version of hostapd is old and I wanted to use the latest stable version.
Downloaded ver. 1.0 and trying to do 'make' and 'make install' per the README. I cannot complete make:

Code:
root@box:/usr/local/hostapd-1.0/hostapd# make
../src/utils/trace.c:28:22: fatal error: demangle.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make: *** [../src/utils/trace.o] Error 1
root@box:/usr/local/hostapd-1.0/hostapd#
I don't know how to troubleshoot the demangle.h error and/or determine what may be missing or wrong with my gcc compiler settings.

Thank you for any guidance.

Code:
cd hostapd-1.0/hostapd/
cat defconfig | sed -e '/^#CONFIG_DRIVER_NL80211=y/s/^#//' \
                        -e '/^#CONFIG_RADIUS_SERVER=y/s/^#//' \
                        -e '/^#CONFIG_DRIVER_WIRED=y/s/^#//' \
                        -e '/^#CONFIG_DRIVER_NONE=y/s/^#//' \
                        -e '/^#CONFIG_IEEE80211N=y/s/^#//' > .config

make
No issues with the 32bits Slackware 14.

Ref. the file hostapd.spec , hostapd-1.0-3.fc18.src.rpm

I do not have a hostapd.spec file.
What does yours tell you?

The hostapd fedora rpm works on Slack 14?

Not required. Just use the "cat defconfig | sed" command,
and you can run 'make' with no errors.

If you want to read the spec file, you will have to plug it out
from the src source package, hostapd-1.0-3.fc18.src.rpm.
Links for a development package are short lived,
and the package is easy to find with Google.
But here is a current link example ..
http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedo...3.fc18.src.rpm

Note : It is always a good idea to investigate how others build a new version.
I'd usually look for Debian and Fedora packages, to see the build commands,
and to get patches. "hostapd-1.0" : No usable patches in the Fedora package.
Debian http://packages.debian.org/sid/hostapd ( [wpa_1.0-3.debian.tar.gz] ).

I must be misunderstanding what to do.
I tried the following:

Code:
root@box:/usr/local/hostapd-1.0/hostapd# cat defconfig | sed -e '/^#CONFIG_DRIVER_NL80211=y/s/^#//' \
>                         -e '/^#CONFIG_RADIUS_SERVER=y/s/^#//' \
>                         -e '/^#CONFIG_DRIVER_WIRED=y/s/^#//' \
>                         -e '/^#CONFIG_DRIVER_NONE=y/s/^#//' \
>                         -e '/^#CONFIG_IEEE80211N=y/s/^#//' > .config
root@box:/usr/local/hostapd-1.0/hostapd# make
../src/utils/trace.c:28:22: fatal error: demangle.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make: *** [../src/utils/trace.o] Error 1
root@box:/usr/local/hostapd-1.0/hostapd#

A simpler way of creating the file ".config" ( by using the example defconfig ) :

cd hostapd-1.0/hostapd/ && cp -a defconfig .config
... And then run 'make'.

Yes, I originally created the .config file as recommended by the README --- edited defconfig and then saved to .config

But then make always gives the demangle.h error and I cannot understand how to fix it or work around it.

Well, one of the options that you have used seems to require the non existing demangle.h .

Please try out the config file that includes the options shown in post # 2.
1) Delete .config
2) Copy the attached config.txt to hostapd-1.0/hostapd/
3) Rename config.txt to .config
.... And run 'make'.
.

The file hostapd.defconfig from the Slackbuild hostapd-0.6.10 works too in 1.0 :
http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.0/network/hostapd/
> http://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/1...hostapd.tar.gz

The same again : Delete .config, and use hostapd.defconfig as .config

Knudfl,


Thank you very much for your patience.
I deleted the source directory for hostapd, un-tar'ed from source again, used the config.txt you provided, and make && make install worked with no errors or problems.
I don't know what option in my previous config file caused the demangle.h problem; still cannot figure that out.

Reviewing your config.txt -- am I seeing correctly that hostapd default is to build with support for wpa and wpa2?

Thanks again for your patience and guidance.
