When the update finished, I got a "You can safely remove this file' message too. I had to do "Equo install net-wireless/wpa_supplicant " (from information I got from the Gentoo Wireless wiki, from my post viewtopic.php?f=52&t=29102&p=158466&hilit=broadcom+b43#p158466 , back in February.)
I just reinstalled net-wireless/wpa_supplicant, and equo didn't complain that it was already installed. I might have to reboot to get that working, and I'll do that after finishing this, but I want to get this information typed before I lose track of what I've done.
Backto the first post about this, I did follow the instructions and run equo query installed b43, and it shows;
- Code: Select all

So I have that. The first post also links to an Ubuntu guide that says I need rndis_wlan, ( I have the bcm4320 chip) although the information seems more pertinent to kernels before 2.6.37. b43-fwcutter and b43-firmware are suggested in the Sabayon post too, but while I don't know if those are installed on my system, or necessary, as I said I did have this broadcom working before, with or without them.
