I wanted to report an issue with the iw utility in Sabayon which needs to be updated from portage.
This utility is mainly used for stuff like changing region for wifi cards which would allow someone to use certain channels or increase power of the card (range) using iwconfig once the region has been set...to operate the card according to the regulated limits of a specific country, etc. which is quite important..because other than that you're not allowed to do so.
This is the error I get when trying to change the country or invoke some command using iw:
- Code: Select all
iw reg set US
iw: error while loading shared libraries: libnl-genl-3.so.200: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
But I did try installing the same utility from portage instead of the one in Entropy, and apparently iw command works but I'm not able to change the country and it default to country 00
I dunno what's going on but on other distros it works fine, please let me know if anyone has a suggestion or work around for this or if it's really a bug that should be looked into.
