I'm attempting to install the rtl8192se-2.6.0019.1207.2010#2.6.39-sabayon package in Entropy, as it seems like my best hope for getting my extremely frustrating USB wi-fi adapter to work in Sabayon. Unfortunately, when I do so, Entropy auto-selects almost 3 gigabytes worth of extra packages as if the driver package depended on them all. (I hope a wi-fi driver package doesn't depend on "USB multiplex daemon for use with Apple iPhone/iPod Touch devices", or "Effects for Cheese, the webcam video and picture application"...) I initially assumed it was simply requiring me to update my existing software before installing something new, but other randomly selected packages (not to mention the equivalent driver packages for older versions of the kernel) don't seem to have the same issue. And I've considered just giving up and downloading all the random packages anyway, but the only way I can even get Sabayon on the Internet right now is by tethering it to my less-than-reliable cellphone--3 GB would take days on that thing.
Can anyone help? Thanks.
EDIT: I'm on a 64-bit GNOME installation of Sabayon 6, if it matters.
