Unable to compile hostapd


I have looked at the other posts that are similar in nature but they do not answer my question completely. Plus I am really new to Linux and working within this environment. Not even sure of all the information you will need to answer me but I did make a copy of my error messages. I will provide any other information I can but may need help figuring out how to do that. Hope you people are patient.

These are the warnings I get when I try to compile:
Code:

Welcome to LQ. .. .. ..

Have you tried with # yum install hostapd
( hostapd is available for Fedora 12..14.)


Building hostapd : May be you are missing a requirement ..
http://hostap.epitest.fi/gitweb/gitw...hostapd/README
Or / and # yum install glibc-devel kernel-devel openssl-devel

About post #1 : Could you please edit it to use code tags :
[/code] at code end, and [code] at code text start.

Thanks for the reply and I have looked at the links. Like I said I am real new to this. I don't know what you mean by # yum. I will look a bit closer at the requirements listed in that first link and see if I can figure out if my system meets them. Thanks again.

'yum' is the Fedora software installer. In Linux we do usually not download software.
But use a command line installer like yum, or the GUI 'Package Manager'. ('yumex'?)
It's like a catalog with 16,000 packages :
Choose, click OK, and the software gets installed.

Using yum : Open the terminal, and : 1) su <enter-password>
2) yum search <name> ( Or part of name )
3) yum install hostapd

Also useful : Finding the package that provides a file : yum provides */<file>
Please also read 'man yum'. It's a manual page, to be read in the terminal.
http://linux.die.net/man/8/yum
More questions : Then please tell which Fedora, you use. ( cat /etc/redhat-release ).

Good luck !
..
