Default KDE3 removal

Hello,

I've been updating a kde3 workstation to kde4
off and on for a few days now. KDE4 is installed
and seem to work, no extensive testing yet.

However, when I run revdep-rebuild, it complains
about numerous kde3 based packages. Most, if not all
had the kde4 equivalent packages installed. So I just
manually deleted the list of kde3.5.x based packages.
<snip>

So a few more manual passes of removing the offending kde-3.5.x
packages and I'm down to this list of packages that
revdep-rebuild wants to rebuild:

I get the list from revdep-rebuild, research if I want the
packages and then clean out the (crufted) revdep-rebuild
list and continue until I'm down to these packages:


These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild N ] sys-fs/device-mapper-1.02.24-r1 USE="(-selinux)"
[ebuild U ] media-libs/lcms-1.18-r1 [1.17]
[ebuild R ] sys-fs/cryptsetup-1.0.6-r2
[ebuild R ] net-libs/xulrunner-1.8.1.19
[ebuild U ] net-libs/xulrunner-1.9.1.4 [1.9.0.7] USE="alsa%* python%*
-debug% -sqlite% -startup-notification*"
[ebuild R ] sys-apps/hal-0.5.12_rc1-r8


So far so good. I did not actually allow revdep-rebuild to
complete, as I want all vestiges of kde3 and other cruft gone.

Now I have a list I can focus on, except, I'm confused about
device-mapper, ,cryptsetup, and xulrunner as my research suggest
device-mapper is not needed, but it is being call by:
[ Searching for packages depending on device-mapper... ]
sys-fs/cryptsetup-1.0.6-r2 (>=sys-fs/device-mapper-1.00.07-r1)


Research suggests that I can install lvm2 and be done with that? But it
first wants to call back device-mapper?


Now, guidance here is appreciated.

device-mapper has been moved into lvm2 as only it and crypt really use it.
Just bypass revdep-rebuild for this and install lvm2, then possibly reboot and
remove device-mapper.

I find it odd that you have two SLOTs of xulrunner. These days we tend to need
only one at a time. Perhaps you have both in world; what does equery depends
have to say about those packages?

For the rest, just let revdep-rebuild rebuild them

Well revdep-rebuild finally shows clear.

After updating and syncing, I get this upon trying to update world:

[ebuild U ] sys-apps/kbd-1.15 [1.13-r1]
[ebuild U ] sys-fs/udev-147-r1 [147]
[uninstall ] sys-fs/device-mapper-1.02.24-r1
[blocks b ] sys-fs/device-mapper ("sys-fs/device-mapper" is blocking
sys-fs/udev-147-r1)
[blocks B ] <sys-fs/lvm2-2.02.45 ("<sys-fs/lvm2-2.02.45" is blocking
sys-fs/udev-147-r1)

* Error: The above package list contains packages which cannot be
* installed at the same time on the same system.

('installed', '/', 'sys-fs/lvm2-2.02.36', 'nomerge') pulled in by
sys-fs/lvm2 required by world

('ebuild', '/', 'sys-fs/udev-147-r1', 'merge') pulled in by
virtual/dev-manager required by world

I think swt and eclispe 3.4 are calling for the second xulrunner....?

using equery depends ......

swt version 3.4 and 3.5 DEPEND on xulrunner:1.9
swt version 3.3 DEPENDs on xulrunner:1.8

eclipse doesn't DEPEND on xulrunner at all, but various other things do.
equery depends -a xulrunner:1.8 lists about 40 possibilities here.
