Hello, I have to set my static values for Wlan0 , and I find no way to do that. Why isnt there a single graphical tool to configure the net? This is the only distro of the many ive tried that doesnt. Not user friendly at all.
If anybody could help me, Id be very grateful. Otherwise, id have to remove this distro.

Well I agree there. Networking is a real monster for me too and still does not work right. SL definitely does need a Networking wizard.

Everything is though for KNetworkManager. As far as I know, if you set static IPs to interfaces you will break the network manager so you wonÂ´t be able to connect to encrypted wifi and so on (unless you do it manually with cmmands).

We are still waiting for the static IP patch to be accepted into NetworkManager.
GUI Sabayon Control Centre is next on development list after entrophy as far as I can remember..
and that should having a networking GUI, however at present it is still in planning and design stages
