Configuration file: /tmp/fakeAP_pwn.hostapd
Line 3: invalid/unknown driver 'nl80211'
1 errors found in configuration file '/tmp/fakeAP_pwn.hostapd'
So I don't have the nl80211 driver installed. I modprobed to check for it and it's definitely not there. Now a site I came across says I should install the compat-wireless package to get the module. I'm a little timid doing this. Is that the right thing to do?
