I'm using hostapd to broadcast my wireless network. I'm cycling through a list of config files. I'm able to create a wireless network the first time, but as soon as I'm trying to cycle to the next one it gives the following errors:
root@RaspberryPi:~# hostapd -B /tmp/hostapd.conf Configuration file: /tmp/hostapd.conf Failed to update rate sets in kernel module Using interface wlan0 with hwaddr 4e:53:50:4f:4f:4e and ssid 'WiFi' ctrl_iface exists and seems to be in use - cannot override it Delete 'wlan0/wlan0' manually if it is not used anymore Failed to setup control interface wlan0: Unable to setup interface.
Here is where the broadcasting stops. I always get the kernel module error, but it works the first time without a problem. So it must be the other part. Unfortunately I don't understand the error
ctrl_iface exists and seems to be in use - cannot override it and what comes after it. I have a hard time searching for the answer, so hopefully you people can help me out. How do I succesfully cycle through the list of config files?
