I selected no-multilib. Now, how can I install plasma? Plasma and no-multilib are two different profiles. What do?

kts,

Welcome to Gentoo.

Your profile presets a useful range of USE flags. You can see the difference in
Code:
emerge --info
Look at the USE setting with different profiles selected.
You will need to add more USE flags into make.conf is all.

The differences between the no-multilib and plasma profiles will be a good start.

A bigger question is which stage3 tarball did you use for the install?
The no-multilib stage3 tarball will not support 32 bit applications.

Choosing the no-multilib profile on other tarballs abandons the 32 bit support provided in the tarballs.

Its a question of both the stage3 tarball and the profile.

You may create a new custom profile which is the sum of both provided profiles.

For example my Gentoo repository is in /var/portage/repos/gentoo while my custom local repository is in /var/portage/repos/fturco. In this case you may create the following files.

1. /var/portage/repos/fturco/profiles/fturco/parent:
Code:
../../../gentoo/profiles/default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/plasma
../../../gentoo/profiles/default/linux/amd64/13.0/no-multilib


2. /var/portage/repos/fturco/profiles/profiles.desc:
Code:
amd64 fturco stable


3. /var/portage/repos/fturco/profiles/repo_name:
Code:
fturco


Please change the paths according to your system. For example the Gentoo repository may be in /usr/portage instead.

Now you should be able to select your new custom profile with eselect.

The last step is to update @world:
Code:
emerge -uDNav @world --with-bdeps=y

There is no point to a custom profile. That is quite literally the purpose of the USE variable in make.config
