i'm trying to set up an AP, i am using the madwifi drivers and hostap(v0.4.9), i followed everything i could find and its still not working, this is what hostap says when i run it

Code:
root@mr-slack:~/new-kernel-fun/hostapd-0.4.9$ hostapd -ddddd /etc/hostapd.conf
Configuration file: /etc/hostapd.conf
Configure bridge br0 for EAPOL traffic.
madwifi_set_iface_flags: dev_up=0

the last few lines that repeate appear when i try to connect, this is my config file

Code:
root@mr-slack:~/new-kernel-fun/hostapd-0.4.9$ cat /etc/hostapd.conf
# reading passphrase from stdin
# An additional configuration parameter, bridge,
# must be used to notify hostapd if the interface is included in a bridge.

bridge=br0
# Enable this for standard bridging, leave disabled for netfilter firewalls
interface=ath0
driver=madwifi
logger_syslog=-1
logger_syslog_level=2
logger_stdout=--1
logger_stdout_level=2
debug=5
ctrl_interface_group=0
macaddr_acl=0
deny_mac_file=/etc/hostapd.deny
auth_algs=3
eapol_key_index_workaround=0
eap_server=0
dump_file=/tmp/hostapd.dump
ssid=edman007
wpa=3
#psk="password"
wpa_psk=0ddb70b8d4dec9f8d9922b45d0e3d5f6195d4851f51c669e7c05bd7fdf0b618e
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
wpa_pairwise=TKIP CCMP
the client that is trying to connect is running OSX and just says "there was an error", so does anyone have any ideas on how to get this working?
