Hello, everyone. I've tried to install KDE from packages CD. The install is complaining that kde-base is missing. Is it really not possible to install KDE from packages only or I'm doing someting wrong? The same question about iptables. Can I install it without an internet connection?
Thanks in advance for your replies.

Yes it is possible, did you follow the steps in the handbook?
Code:
# ls /mnt/cdrom

(If there is a /mnt/cdrom/packages directory:)
# export PKGDIR="/mnt/cdrom/packages"

(Otherwise:)
# export PKGDIR="/mnt/cdrom"

# emerge --usepkg kde


http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/2005.0/handbook-x86.xml?part=1&chap=11

If you followed those instructions, what is the exact error message you got?

Yes, I've done it. emerge --usepkg kde installed a whole lot of stuff but didn't find kdebase package on CD and was trying to get it from the internet. Since the machine was not connected, emerge exited with an error. I was trying to look for kdebase package on both CDs. It wasn't there. I'm trying to install 2005.1 version.
