i did in terminal:

Code: Select all

emerge -a b43-firmware
i got:

Code: Select all

Calculating dependencies |
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "net-wireless/b43-firmware" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- net-wireless/b43-firmware-0.1 (masked by: corruption)
i'm new to sabayon, and dont know anything about emerge.

update: i used spritz to download the needed firmware but still cant connect to my wifi router. i tried every network setting and still cant get it to go. i'm on sabayon 3.5 loop2 using the broadcom 43xx. is this difficult in sabayon? i like sabayon, but dont want to spend days (or even hours) on this.
