yes excactly like that with some -g and -I

If tried trace ddd and ltrace, same results.
hostapd is not printing a single error line, not even in trace.

The strange thing is I was crosscompiling with -g but the gdb on the 
target did not find any debugging symbols. Thats why I put my development 
system on my target.
