Hello All,

This may or may not interest someone here. Below is an rpm available for
the hostap daemon with built in nl80211 support natively. This was made
with the idea of allowing your K12linux server to act as an access point
to say laptops in the room were the server resides possibly. If you have
an extra 802.11 wifi pci card lying around and would like to make your
k12linux server act as an access point this will do it. G series AP's
can be had for about $30USD any more so this may not interest anyone. I
just wanted to do this to have better control over the wireless as well
as getting rid of one more device (AP) and plugin.
This has been tested on F9 and F10.
You will need kernel 2.6.22 or newer for this to function.
uname -r - tells you kernel version  you have.
View the README at the download URL for info if you so desire;

Take Care,
Barry Cisna
