Package suggestion create_ap

Post by merihcobanmc » Mon Jul 01, 2019 6:41 am

There is a project named create_ap it combines host_ap and iptables, dhcp. Easy to use. But it cant be installed from offical repos. Can you guys add it ?

Considering it's a single shell script that's a bit overkill. From the clear cut instructions on you'd just need to install two dependencies not found on Linux Mint 19.1 by default. The command apt install hostapd haveged will install those dependencies. Afterwards these commands will download and install create_ap:

Code: Select all

git clone
cd create_ap
sudo make install
Or replace the last command with sudo checkinstall (after installing checkinstall first) and that way a package is built before installing, so you can easily remove create_ap through your package manager.
