^No Edit button, for some reason. Anyway, I should have said "works fine with the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Adapter in my laptop." Have yoy tried reemerging KNetworkManager, or emerging the alternative KNetworkManager in the Portage repository (kde-misc/knetworkmanager instead of net-misc/knetworkmanger) to see if it helps, [i]mbmalone[/i]?

It worked !!! It worked !!! I was able to connect for the first time! Thank you WarraWarra
I still have some system lockup issues which seem to be diminished when I turn off the kicker menu and use the standard KDE menu.

[quote="WarraWarra"]
In the 3.4f live dvd or installed I right click knetworkmanager + other network + linksys in space there , select wpa2 , select auto , add password and it connects every time.

If doing it the same as me = good or bad results ?
Does the router need a reset and see if you can connect with router default settings ? If not the the signal has too much noise or is to weak or is too far away 150foot effective beyond any wifi router claims as there is several other things that removes the "in perfect circumstances theory" of a perfect connection.

IPW3945 is a bit less sensative in linux , much weaker than bcm4311mcg but not much as the firmware does not have the extra windows booster software running for the ipw3945.
See networking part of the forums ipw3945 before 3.4e sticky for help. or even radiation / flower type pic of signal at bottom.[/quote]

I have created xdelta3s from 3.4e to 3.4f (x86 only, I'll do x86_64 only if people ask for 'em). 235MB, compared to 379MB of the xdelta1s officially provided. And doesn't need insane amounts of RAM to patch (~80MB). I'll post here again once I finish uploading them.

I know there are xdeltas available already. But mine are 38% smaller and use only 80MB of RAM while patching. Last time I tried an xdelta provided by the mirrors, I had to kill the process when it reached 600MB of usage (I had only 512MB physical memory at the time).

You need a different version of xdelta to use these (http://xdelta.org). I don't know if it is on portage, but can be easily compiled from source the "manual way". xdelta3 is also available on Windows (actually I created these from Windows).

Step 1: download
http://www.wikifortio.com/217135/sl-x86 ... iso.00.xd3
http://www.wikifortio.com/387633/sl-x86 ... iso.01.xd3
http://www.wikifortio.com/178785/sl-x86 ... iso.02.xd3
http://www.wikifortio.com/550661/sl-x86 ... iso.03.xd3

Step 2 (can be done while the xdeltas are still downloading):
Install xdelta3 if you don't have it already, get it from:
http://code.google.com/p/xdelta/downloads/list

Step 3 (can be done while the xdeltas are still downloading):
split -b1115465216 -d SabayonLinux-x86-3.4e.iso sl-x86-3.4e.iso.

Step 4:
for n in 00 01 02 03; do
xdelta3 -dvv -s sl-x86-3.4e.iso.${n} sl-x86-3.4e-to-3.4f.iso.${n}.xd3 >> SabayonLinux-x86-3.4f.iso;
# optionally, free some diskspace (remove this line if you want to keep the xdeltas around for some reason):
rm sl-x86-3.4e.iso.${n} sl-x86-3.4e-to-3.4f.iso.${n}.xd3;
done;

Hmm... It was a bad idea to post the xdelta so early. I just made a 169MB xdelta that doesn't even need splitting the iso. Yep, that's for the DVD version, x86, 3.4e-to-3.4f. I better experiment more before posting again.

just stopping by to say that ive been running 3.4f on my v2140 Compaq since the release with nothing but great joy and how it works. the biggest issue was fixed in 3.4 with the belkin N wireless card.

Looking forward to trying out the new 3.5 loop and giving out info with the laptop again. keep up the great work Sabayon Staff.

Thanks,
Jose
