I have decided to take the next step in learning linux and have taken on GENTOO. I am following the tutorial on this site
I am currently at 11 "Get the stage 3 tarball (assuming you're doing a stage 3 install, which we are)" and I am trying to connect to links2.
but I am totally new to trying to connect to a wifi on gentoo.
I have looked at many forums and blogs and have come across WPA_SUPPLICANT. my wireless provider is UPC (located in Ireland) so it is WPA/WPA2.
I have tried to follow many tutorials for example
but when I try to follow them (one tutorial said to use the command )
$ emerge wpa_supplicant
in order to install it, it was not recognised as a command. (one example of many issues)
I have also tried to find the driver but cannot find out which one it is, I'm installing it on a Sony Vaio W12s1e netbook with an intel atom processor and 1gb RAM
I have been at this for awhile and just need to set up my wifi in Gentoo
If you can tell me how it would really help me
