kdebase-3.4.1.tbz2 MISSING FROM PACKAGE CD. ACCIDENT OR DESIGN?

Having such an important KDE package missing from the Gentoo (pre-compiled) package CD is a very large oversight.

When
emerge --usepkg kde cannot find the kdebase-3.4.1.tbz2 package it tries to download the source packages:

pcre-5.0.tar.bz2 -- 456 KB
libidn-0.5.15.tar.gz -- 1,930 KB
kdebase-3.4.1.tar.bz2 -- 21,936 KB

This it does, however, when it attempts the compilation it dies (at least for i686).

Do you think that the CD package producers put together a sloppy package CD, or do they just dislike KDE?

Can you verify on the CD that the package really exists?

I doub't they did it because they dislike KDE... KDE the most used DE then any Desktop Environment...

I assume you mean: Can you verify that the package is really missing? Well, yes....

On the Gentoo 2005 package CD its equivalent was called kdebase-3.3.2-r1.tbz2 -- 23MB.

Hi,

I can confirm that the package was missing, but the system will attempt to download it when trying to emerge kde.
Unfortuneately, I've run into a similar problem with the compile of kdebase-3.4.1 when the package is retrieved and compiled.
I also tried to emerge sync in case the package versions changed, but ended with the same error.
If there is anything that I can provide to assist in the diagonsis, let me know and I will post it.

Back to trying... :)

I think it was by design; just to ruin your day.

Thanks.
