Re: knetworkmanager on gentoo

I think the most likely problem is that you are emerging net-misc/networkmanager with the gnome use flag enabled, which includes the gnome specific additions to network manager.

Try overriding the gnome use flag for networkmanager and check again: (as root)
mkdir -p /etc/portage
echo "net-misc/networkmanager -gnome" >> /etc/portage/package.use
emerge -va networkmanager

If this doesn't help then the networkmanager probably has some gnome specific code bleeding into the base code, but that seems unlikely.

    I am not a Gentoo user but it does sound like a portage issue.   In
    other distro's Network-Manager has been divided into the core system
    (called Network-Manager in Debian) and the front-end (called
    Network-Manager-Gnome and KNetworkManager/network-manager-KDE in
    Debian).   It sounds like whoever maintains that "package" (Sorry
    don't know the proper Gentoo term) has created one monolithic package
    rather than breaking it out so that KDE users can get the core without
    the Gnome dependencies.

I have the gnome flag disabled globally, using a KDE desktop.

I found a link to a gentoo specific howto that mentions an additional overlay (sabayon). I'm trying to install it that way now.
