I am a newbie to Sabayon/Gentoo. I have installed Sabayon on my acer aspire 5100 laptop. But I am unable to configure my Broadcom Wireless connection. When I try to configure it using knetworkmanager, it hangs. When I give the command knetworkmanager as root, cursor keeps blinking and nothing happens. I do not get back the command prompt even when I press ctrl+c. Even if I start 'top' and try to kill knetworkmanager, it doesn't work out. I am unable to kill the process even using killall -TERM knetworkmanager.
When I tried to modprobe ndiswrapper using the following command -
nothing happens, I don't get back the command prompt.
"Ctrl+c" doesn't seem to be working most of the time. It doesn't kill most of the run away programs.
Any idea what could be the problem?
