I have downloaded
backports-wireless-testing-2014-12-16-0439ecc.tar.bz2 and used it.
But start.sh failed with following error.

$ ./start.sh
modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'mac80211_hwsim': Exec format error
hwsim0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device

My environment is Ubuntu 14.04.1 Server.
I typed following commands.

$ tar xjf backports-wireless-testing-latest.tar.bz2
$ cd backports-wireless-testing-2014-12-16-0439ecc/
$ make clean
$ make menuconfig
enable all without atheros drivers
$ make -j4
$ sudo make install

Is there anything wrong ?
