Did you do
emerge --sync && layman -S sabayon
No, because I have no idea what that is, and I do not recognize the odd symbol as well.
I can see it trying to connect, it lists the wireless router ID correctly, the mac address, the protocol but keeps "trying to associate" for about a minute then it ereases everything and it is no longer viewable until; I tell the network manager to connect.
Then I see it again but it will not connect - it goes to 28% and stays there until it quits and erases everything.
If I do an iwconfig while it is trying to associate, all the data s in the iwconfig file that should be there, then that all goes away as welll once it gives up associating.
This is driving me nuts, everyone said it is simple plug and play with Sabayon but I am getting really frustrated at this point.
Just what is this emerge -- sync ** layman -S sabayon caoomand do? is it typed exactly as written above? What is the odd symbol?
Thanks for your patience.
I'll buy you several cold ones...
