Rpi4 hostapd

I have done some research trying to see why my rpi4 will not load hostapd. Maybe too much research. I see where there are some concerns about hostapd binaries in the current release of dietpi gor the rpi4. I am mot sure if it has been resolved or not. Anyone know?

I am likely just doing something stupid but before I waste anyone’s time asking for help I wanted to know if I am chasing my tail. Got it working on Raspian Buster and usually dietpi is way easier.
