Right now I have the latest. But it also appears that the previous versions are still installed on my system...

Code:

# ll /usr/kde
total 1
drwxr-xr-x  5 root root 120 Dec  1 07:27 ./
drwxr-xr-x 16 root root 544 Sep 11 21:04 ../
drwxr-xr-x  9 root root 216 Mar  2  2005 3.3/
drwxr-xr-x  9 root root 216 Mar 20  2005 3.4/
drwxr-xr-x  9 root root 216 Dec  1 10:09 3.5/


And the session menu on the login screen lists the older versions as well. And they actually work when I select them.

Well, to me it seems a waste of space since I never use the older versions.

But it also seems that I can't remove any older versions with emerge...

Code:
# emerge -pC kde

>>> These are the packages that I would unmerge:

 kde-base/kde
    selected: 3.5.1
   protected: none
     omitted: none

>>> 'Selected' packages are slated for removal.
>>> 'Protected' and 'omitted' packages will not be removed.


Code:

# emerge -pP kde

>>> These are the packages that I would unmerge:

>>> prune: No packages selected for removal.


Is getting rid of these older versions just a simple matter of doing

Code:

# rm -rf /usr/kde/3.[34]


Thanks.
