Re: knetworkmanager on gentoo

Looks like the ebuild under gentopia is missing the gnome USE check for configure, try using the ebuild attached here instead.

Copy it back into the gentopia directory: /usr/portage/local/layman/gentopia/net-misc/networkmanager/networkmanager- 0.6.4-r1.ebuild
Rebuild the digest: ebuild /usr/portage/local/layman/gentopia/net-misc/networkmanager/networkmanager-0.6.4-r1.ebuild digest
emerge -va networkmanager

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.
