I'm able to start wpa_supplicant service to surf the Internet by browser without starting p2p_supplicant service in init.rc. However if I add p2p_supplicant service and to start p2p_supplicant service, the following error occurs. At the same time, wpa_supplicant service can't start too. It seems there's conflict, can anyone help please?


I/wpa_supplicant(  935): nl80211: Driver does not support authentication/association or connect commands

E/wpa_supplicant(  935): Could not read interface p2p0 flags: No such device

E/wpa_supplicant(  935): p2p0: Failed to initialize driver interface

E/wpa_supplicant(  935): Failed to add interface p2p0


In init.rc,


service p2p_supplicant /system/bin/wpa_supplicant \

    -iwlan0 -Dnl80211 -c/data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf \

    -I/system/etc/wifi/p2p_supplicant_advance_overlay.conf -N \

    -ip2p0 -Dnl80211 -c/data/misc/wifi/p2p_supplicant.conf \
