Default KDE 4.1.2... a winner!

It turns out that /etc/portage/package.keywords
and /etc/portage/package.unmask can be directories, which is convenient
for organizational purposes. If this is the case, autounmask does the
smart thing and creates the file autounmask-pkgname (in this case,
autounmask-kde-meta) in those folders. I find this a much easier way to
try it out, and maintain its additions.

Yes, but that can be dodgy. I may want 4.1.2 but not 4.2.0_beta.

On my ~x86, I had to add:

~app-misc/strigi-0.5.11

to etc/portage/package.unmask/autounmask-kde-meta to resolve a blocking
issue between strigi-0.5.10 and strigi-0.5.11

app-misc/strigi:0

('installed', '/', 'app-misc/strigi-0.5.11', 'nomerge') pulled in by
('ebuild', '/', 'kde-base/libplasma-4.1.2', 'merge')

('ebuild', '/', 'app-misc/strigi-0.5.10', 'merge') pulled in by
('ebuild', '/', 'kde-base/kdebase-kioslaves-4.1.2', 'merge')
('ebuild', '/', 'kde-base/nepomuk-4.1.2', 'merge')
('ebuild', '/', 'kde-base/kdegraphics-strigi-analyzer-4.1.2', 'merge')
(and 4 more)


BTW, I also changed all of the '=' to '~' to catch any future revs...

Compiling now...

A bit of a stupid question but I want to be double-sure:
-KDE 4 and KDE 3 can happily live together, isn't it?
-Do I need to backup config files/use KDE 4 as another user if I want to
switch between KDE 4 and KDE 3?

-Anything else to worry about?

Thanks!

I have both kde-3.5.10 and kde-4.1.2 and there are a couple of small
incompatibilities... and that's why they are still masked. If I recall
right... I had to upgrade to the latest ~x86 portage and then I had to iron
out kopete for both versions of kde... No show stoppers, but there are a few
issues you'll have to iron out.

Sorry, I made no notes... but in my MOST HUMBLE opinion... there's no reason
to not to try kde-4.1.2.

Well, for me laziness is just enough to let me wait for it to hit at
least ~x86...


(Also, I don't want ~x86 portage)

Why not? It's running well on several machines here, some are fully ~arch
while others run mainly stable with a handful of testing packages,
including portage.

Or you could use paludis, that way you can install KDE4 without needing
~x86 portage ;-)

When I tried that just now I got this (blank lines pruned):

# autounmask kde-meta
autounmask version 0.21 (using PortageXS-0.02.07 and portage-2.2_rc11)
* Using repositories:
/usr/portage
/usr/local/portage
* The given category/package-version does not seem to exist. Listing
existing versions:
* gentoo (/usr/portage):
none
* local-repo (/usr/local/portage):
none
* Please pick one of the versions given above and try again.

Looks like I need something else too - and yes, I have run emerge --sync.

I had tried KDE-4.1.1 and see that there is no problems to use it! i tried
like much other people KDE-4.0 and there it was in heavy development.

KDE-4.1.2 is running good, too.

The only biggest thing i see in moment is the Amarok and hanging _sometimes_.
But this will be done near future.

The second is, if you like to configure your panel's you are not able to
choose the place of icon's were you want to place it exactly. on kde-look.org
is a panel-spacer available.

BTW, have Gentoo KDE maintainers any plans/politics wrt KDE4 unmasking for
~archs? 4.2?
