Been searching the forums to try and figure out how to get the multimedia buttons on my keyboard to work and apparently I need kxkb (I run KDE 3.4). I try to emerge kxkb and I get this...

Code:

localhost mike # emerge -pv kxkb

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[blocks B     ] =kde-base/kdebase-3.4* (is blocking kde-base/kxkb-3.4.1)
[ebuild  N    ] kde-base/kxkb-3.4.1  +arts -debug -kdeenablefinal -kdexdeltas -xinerama 0 kB


What the hell uses kxkb if kdebase is blocking it???
To install kde I did
Code:

emerge kde


Any answers would be appreciated.

I wondered why kdebase blocked kdm until I noticed that kde maintainers have splitted kde into smaller pieces. There is still bigger packages for kde in portage and if you are trying to install package that is in some package you already have emerged that package blocks the package you're trying to emerge. I thin that you alreydy have kxkb installed via another ebuild.

Moved from Desktop Environments to Duplicate Threads in favour of Blockers in KDE 3.4.1
