Subject: Re: [gentoo-desktop] KDE stabilization upgrade guide


I upgraded last week on two x86 stable arch machines from 4.2 to 4.6 and everything went well.
The only thing I had to do was to add a few use flags like:

kde-base/kdelibs semantic-desktopkde-base/kdepimlibs semantic-desktop
Even though make.profile is link to kde profile.
But it's only my 2 cents contribution.

Thank you!JM

Hi everyone,

as additional preparation for the KDE 4.6 stabilization, here's a first shot

at an "upgrade guide". Work in progress!

In principle the upgrade should go pretty smooth on its own. The main purpose

of the guide is to collect tips, tricks, recommendations for the case when

problems occur...

Feel free to suggest improvements.

Cheers, Andreas
