have anyone tried cross-compiling hostapd for armhf/aarch64?
i’ve found this:
where i downloaded libnl from other source and replaced configure line with these:
tar -xzf libnl-3.5.0.tar.gz
./configure --host=arm-linux-gnueabi --prefix=/usr/arm-linux-gnueabihf
last git repo i’ve found (https://github.com/tgraf/libnl.git, official git on infradead is not clonable) does not contain the configure script
also http://w1.fi/hostap.git does not contain configure-script, readme and files in doc-folder do not contain any build-instructions and no Makefile…i want to use new hostap to get rid of the “netlink: ‘hostapd’: attribute type 213 has an invalid length.” in newer Kernel-versions
We compile it inside qemu chroot since ever - if that helps you in any way:
Where did i find code for chroot and compile itself?
Files in hostapd*.debian look like only controlfiles for deb packaging
If you don’t want to mess around, get our tools and run any image (choose desired release: buster, bionic, …) with EXTERNAL_NEW=“compile” … this will construct minimal file system and compile those packages with proper compiler. Before you run compile, patch / add patch sources with whatever you need.
Probably messier way is construction your own script based on https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/lib/chroot-buildpackages.sh
Thank you, seems the key is
Which is called by buildpackages.sh after creating the chroot…i will try your way creating a armhf/aarch64 chroot (already done for r2/r64 images) and build hostapd inside of this.
which packets are installed by default (not listed in hostapd config)? like git,gcc,make,… (seems these 3 Packages are enough…had build hostapd in my chroot)
after cloning i need to copy defconfig to .config in folder hostapd before running make
where is this done in your system?

i guess i need a stretch chroot for my stretch-target-system
