You state that you have Sabayon 4.2. installed
If you have done a clean install of Sabayon 4.2.Gnome then Network Manager should be working with no problems so there would be no need to install wicd (unless you want to)
But if wireless is not working and you have not made any other changes to the clean install then install wicd 1.5.9-r1 and if works (make a backup of your Sabayon partition) once you have created a backup image then try installing latest wicd
If you only updated from your old Sabayon 4.x to Sabayon 4.2 and wicd 1.5.9-r1 is working then I suggest you make a backup of your Sabayon partition before making any other changes, once you have created a backup image then try installing the latest wicd (if it does not work then you can restore backup image instead of doing another clean install)
Sabayon 4.2.Gnome wireless worked for me straight out of the box so there was no need to install wicd
I have seen other threads that some users can't get wireless working at all with 4.2.Gnome but we do not know what other changes these users have made to their systems before installing wicd
Sabayon 4.2.Kde wireless worked with Network Manager once after clean install, but did not work after first reboot so had to install wicd 1.6.2
