I am wondering if there is a good listing of USE flags to use under a powerbook?

I would like a system that is as fully functional as possible using KDE.

On my previous build of KDE, I found it lacking many of the things that I would expect from a normal KDE build (I guess, as expected).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

well quite obviously
X kde qt -gnome -gtk
it's really hard to say "well these are the ones you need"
I suggest you just go
Code:
euse -i | less

and pick the ones you want. If you want to change your USE flags at any time just go
Code:
emerge -DNav world

and that will re-emerge packages where the USE flag(s) have changed.

What things were you missing from kde last time?

HTH

Here's the USE flags from my make.conf. I'm running a PowerBook G4 Ti 500MHz and I can do everything I need to do. I use it for work every day.

Code:
USE="-gtk -gnome qt kde dvd alsa cdr oss oggvorbis musicbrainz"


Note: The 'dvd alsa cdr oss oggvorbis musicbrainz' bit is only there because I like to listen to music in amaroK and watch some movies in mplayer (15" widescreen ;) ).

Your USE flags will depend quite heavily on your definition of 'as fully functional as possible'. Also, you say you were missing functionality in KDE. That is most likely due to missing packages rather than specific USE flags. Any more info on what your requirements are would be enable us to make a few more suggestions.
