Hi guys,

I have a laptop which is normally hooked up to the internet by cable and for a long time I didn't bring it anywhere where I needed wireless. Now that I have started to need wireless it doesn't work anymore, which it used to way back. I have done tons of updates etc in the meanwhile. Now I have been googling for several days without finding the issue. Can anyone help?

I can scan wireless networks and get a list. But selecting a network does not seem to do anything. I run Gnome 3 if that matters.

Code:
$ NetworkManager --no-daemon

Somewhere in that sequence I tried to connect to a wireless network, but it didn't seem to generate any output. My user is in the plugdev-group.

So, I managed to solve it myself by following http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/NetworkManager

Put

Code:
rc_hotplug="!net.*"


in /etc/rc.conf and removed netmount from startup scripts.

On one hand I blame myself for not RTFM, on the other hand, how could I have spotted this while emerging the package in the first place? I can't remember having read this on gentoo.org?
