Hey folks, has anyone succeeded in getting hostapd running under Linux on the Neo Z64? I have aspirations to turn my Z64 into an access point as part of my plan for world domination...

I am using the Ubuntu 14.04 image kindly put together by +Ian MORRISON, but hostapd fails to launch under this.

I'm looking at what I think is the latest driver source for the RTL8723 from https://github.com/hadess/rtl8723bs, but this doesn't compile against the 3.16.0 kernel shipped with 14.04. Will try building against 3.19 kernel later... (hopefully the linux-generic-lts-vivid 3.19 kernel will work on this box)

Also wondered whether Ubuntu 15.10 would just work out of the box, but when I tried it I got lots of freezes and crashes, so we probably need a custom distro variant for these machines too?

Thought I would post here before I spend too much time futzing around, in case anyone has been here and got the T-Shirt already :-)
