Hello everyone,

I've unmasked the ebuilds for kde-3.0.4, released a few hours ago. This is the latest bugfix release of the kde 3.0.x tree. Details about the release
(changelog, etc.) should soon be available on

In addition to these, the kdebase-3.0.4 ebuild includes all the bugfixes from kdebase-3.0.3-r1, which was never unmasked. These are:

#6519 - ksplash-ml problems: for things to work properly, emerge the (soon to be unmasked) ksplash-ml-0.95.2-r1 and optionally ksplash-ml-themes-20020705-r1. Make sure to unmerge older revisions.

#5953: use system-auth in the kde pam.d file (kdm and kscreensaver).

Also, there is a better default kdmrc (a few bugfixes). I also plan to provide an even better default kdmrc in the future, with antialiasing enabled by default and a background and gentoo mini-logo.

Note on unstable/masked versions:

Users of qt-3.1.x (via the cvs ebuilds or otherwise): KDE 3.0.4 does NOT work well with qt 3.1.x, at least not with the current qt-copy. kdebindings does not compile at all, and some apps may not run. You have been warned ;-) I suggest everyone use the stable qt 3.0.5 for now. If you want/need qt 3.1.x, you'll probably have to use kde 3.1.x as well.

(I don't know if things actually broke from 3.0.3 to 3.0.4 or if all of kde-3.0.x has these problems; in any case I'm going back to qt 3.0.5 for now myself and suggest you do the same.)
