hello. i would like to know how to remove certian packages from the dependencies list when updating world
heres an example:

Code:
emerge -uDp world
These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating world dependencies ...done!
[ebuild  N    ] kde-base/kdeedu-3.4.1
[ebuild  NS   ] kde-base/kdenetwork-3.4.1-r1
[ebuild  NS   ] kde-base/kdemultimedia-3.4.1-r1
[ebuild  NS   ] kde-base/kdetoys-3.4.1
[ebuild  N    ] kde-base/kdewebdev-3.4.1
[ebuild  NS   ] kde-base/kdeadmin-3.4.1
[ebuild  NS   ] kde-base/kdeaddons-3.4.1
[ebuild  NS   ] kde-base/kde-3.4.1

i have no need for "kdeedu" so is there a file i can edit that will remove the unwanted packages from an update?

If masking the package you don't want doesn't do it for you, you could copy the ebuild of the app that depends on the unwanted package (emerge -uDtv, I believe should show a tree view of the packages emerge wants to install) to the overlay and edit it (remove the correct dependency entry).
This can possibly make things break, though.
Another option is not using world or system and update packages individually.
With kde I believe using split ebuilds will solve your problem, as they give you more choices as to what you want and what you don't want.
