I am trying to set up a Pi 3 B as a wireless access point. I am running Ubuntu 18.04 server for arm64. I followed the tutorial here, editing the required configuration files. However, during startup dnsmasq fails to start. Typing
systemctrl status dnsmasq gives the following error:
failed to create listening socket for 192.168.5.1: Cannot assign requested address
Searching the web for this error did not give me any good hits. Also, despite editing my /etc/network/interfaces file and commenting out my ssid and passphrase, I can still connect to the internet on the pi. This probably has something to do with the netplan .yaml file still having them, although I don't know how relevant that might be: the tutorial had nothing about editing the .yaml file. Is there a workaround for this, or perhaps a tutorial specifically for Ubuntu for arm that I could follow?
