Kernel 3.9 doesn't install due to missing linux-firmware

Post by cryogenic666 » Fri May 10, 2013 21:40

When I go to install linux-sabayon 3.9, it refuses due to a failed dependency of sys-kernel/linux-firmware-20130421. Linux-firmware seems to be in the repos, but it's the "wrong" version. Only linux-firmware-20130113 is available. I've even enabled "limbo" and it's still not in there. So are we waiting for the proper firmware package to hit the repos before we can install 3.9 or am I missing something?

DO NOT use sabayon-weekly and sabayon-limbo together.

@ lxnay

"DO NOT use sabayon-weekly and sabayon-limbo together."

Oh crap!! I've had my system configured with all three repos activated simultaneously for years! Might explain the few issues I've had. Can you tell me how my repos (e.g., which combination, if any) should be setup if I want to use sabayon-limbo? Thanks.
