After recent major update WPA is no longer working. I've read that "libnl-3.x.x" breaks wpa_supplicant which I think it's the case for me. One thread I found suggested to remove "libnl-3.x.x" and downgrade to "libnl-1.0". This may sound like a dumb question, but what is the command to install a specific version of a package? I'm currently chrooted, so if you need any specific information, please let me know. Thanks.

That's easy.

Code:

emerge =libnl-1.1-r3


Or whatever version you need.

To keep unwanted versions from coming back, put them in package.mask:

/etc/portage/package.mask

Code:

>dev-libs/libnl-1.1-r3


That tells Portage to not install any version of libnl greater than that. If you do that first, you should simply be able to emerge libnl and it will downgrade.

Thanks for the tip. I removed the version causing issues and installed version 3.2.14 and wireless working again.
