I installed hostapd-0.4.9 and issued the  command ./hostapd -B
./hostapd.conf without changing anything on hostapd.conf. But I got the
following output messages. What do I need to get work with this?

[root at localhost hostapd-0.4.9]# ./hostapd -B ./hostapd.conf
Configuration file: ./hostapd.conf
ioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_PRISM2_PARAM]: No such device
Could not enable hostapd mode for interface wlan0
hostap driver initialization failed.
rmdir[ctrl_interface]: No such file or directory
