hostapd problem

Hi I upgraded from fedora 16 to fedora 17 and hostapd service it's not running anymore:

service hostapd start
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start hostapd.service
Job failed. See system journal and 'systemctl status' for details.
Anybody knows why?

Re: hostapd problem

What is the output of 'systemctl status'?

Re: hostapd problem

Try (as root)
systemctl status hostapd.service

Re: hostapd problem

What exactly is the error message?

Code:
systemctl restart hostapd.service
Then check /var/log/messages

Re: hostapd problem

Thanks for you reply george_tolan. This is what i receive in the messages file in fedora 16 when I use
service hostapd start:
May 31 11:47:53 Daniel hostapd[2081]: Starting hostapd: /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf[ OK ]
May 31 11:47:55 Daniel avahi-daemon[1027]: Registering new address record for fe80::4e0f:6eff:fe0e:7c8e on wlan0.*.

May 31 11:47:56 Daniel NetworkManager[1031]: NetworkManager[1031]: <info> (wlan0): roamed from BSSID DA:33:6E:1D:2B:B2 (localhost.local$

The hotspot from wi fi card was turned on and everything it's ok.
Now with the same configuration in fedora 17 (hot spot turned on )
service hostapd start gives me this result:
May 31 16:10:29 Daniel hostapd[1922]: Configuration file: /etc/hostapd.conf

May 31 16:10:47 Daniel dbus-daemon[814]: ** Message: No devices in use, exit
I don't understand why?!

Ok I deleted /etc/hostapd.conf and copied back with my configuration in /etc. Now hostapd service it's working, biut not when the wireless card it's used as "hot spot" mode set up from network manager. When it's in that mode I can't see the hostapd connection.
In fedora 16, when my card it's set up in hot spot mode I have internet wi fi service through hostapd.
Logical I think it's a network manager issue in fedora 17. I might be wrong either.
