hostapd on Gentoo
When using hostapd on Gentoo, make sure to add the
debugUSE flag. Otherwise you will never get any error messages from it. It will only exit with error code 1 and no message even if it's just a silly typo in the config file. Also no logging will work without that USE flag.
Thank god I found this! Would have searched ages for finding this myself. +debug should be default for hostapd, I think I'll write a bug-report for this one.
