Default KDE 4.1.2... a winner!

Well, I took notice that kde 4.1.2 is in portage... I quickly removed kde-svn
and layman and began the unmasking and keywording of 4.1.2. I let it all
install over night and... This morning, with a little trepidation, I booted
into KDE-4.1.2... no problems!

This is the first of the recent kde4.x releases that I've been able to take
full advantage of.

Success at last...

Cheers.

It's 250+ lines (or thereabouts) :-(

Easy way:
emerge --sync

open $PORTDIR/profiles/package.mask
copy/paste HUGE list from 2 Oct
Add these:
=app-misc/strigi-0.5.11
=app-office/akonadi-server-1.0.0
=dev-libs/soprano-2.1

Wonderful news!
Could you share your relevant package.mask and package.keywords, for the
laziest of us?


Thanks

I continue to have a blocking package (actually not installed):

[blocks B ] <=x11-libs/qt-4.4.0_alpha:4 (is blocking x11-libs/qt-
dbus-4.4.1, x11-libs/qt-script-4.4.1, x11-libs/qt-qt3support-4.4.1, x11-
libs/qt-assistant-4.4.1, x11-libs/qt-gui-4.4.1, x11-libs/qt-sql-4.4.1,
x11-libs/qt-xmlpatterns-4.4.1, x11-libs/qt-test-4.4.1, x11-libs/qt-
svg-4.4.1, x11-libs/qt-opengl-4.4.1, x11-libs/qt-webkit-4.4.0)

How to solve it?
Thanks,
Luigi

emerge -Ca "<=x11-libs/qt-4.4.0_alpha:4"

Note the < at the start of the package name, it means any version less
than this (in SLOT 4). You also need the quotes to prevent the shell
interpreting the < as redirection.

For the super-lazy amongst us, what does that package do?

OK, I can figure out what it does, so my real question should be "what other
stuff does it do that I might not expect? Any gotchas?"

I've become ... wary ... of useful sounding packages that claim to automate
tricky portage things

I have used it and it seems to work pretty good. I must confess that I
backed up my /etc just in case. ;-) Never hurts right?

I used it to unmask KDE 4 when it first came out just to see what, if
anything, was different. Since I am still on dial-up and KDE 4 was
updating a pretty good bit, I went back to KDE 3.5.

I also like the way it separated what it added to the package.* files
from what I already had there. In Kwrite for example, you can just
highlight from where it started to the end, hit delete and it is like it
never happened.

May be worth a try, just back up /etc first. Just in case your mileage
varies. :-p

It basically adds a bunch of packages to /etc/portage/packages.unmask
and /etc/portage/packages.keywords, bracketed by start/end comments so
you can remove them. It's a quick and easy way of emerging something
with a lot of masked dependencies, like kde-meta:4.

I used it the last time I tried KDE4 and it did just as was expected,
except is added =cat/pkg-vers, which I changed to ~cat/pkg/vers so I
could pick up and fixes.

You can tell it not to put versions tho.

root@smoker / # autounmask -h

autounmask version 0.21 (using PortageXS-0.02.07 and portage-2.2_rc11)

Usage:
autounmask category/package-version

Options:
-h, --help : Show this help.
-p, --pretend : Just pretend.
-n, --noversions : Do not append version when unmasking a
package. <<<<--------------

root@smoker / #

Just use the -n option. I haven't used that that I can recall tho. Now
watch some guru come up with a script to remove them. ;-)
