Just move .kde out of the way then
Code:
mv .kde .kde.BAK


On Gentoo, ~/.kde is a symlink, which is changed on login by startkde. Arch might use a different approach to allow multiple kde installations, so using same $HOME for both might fail.

Gracias for your help.

But I had to completely delete the directory. mv did not help - kde4 came up but it was looking pretty ugly and slow as a snail.

rm -dfr .kde and a reboot did the trick. It is not the very cleanest solution, but it worked.

just do the following:
Code:
mv ~/.kde ~/.kde3.5
ln -s ~/.kde3.5 ~/.kde

after that, "~/.kde" will be a symlink and kde 4 should stop complaining.

what then happens it that every time you start kde 4, it changes the symlink to point to ~/.kde4.1, and every time you start kde 3, it changes it back to ~/.kde3.5, so that ~/.kde will always point to the directory of the currently running version of kde without getting the directories mixed up (as their contents are not compatible). note that you should not start two parallel sessions with the same user but different kde versions for that very reason.

I do have a strange problem.

I have kde-3.5.9 installed and now successfully emerged kde-4.1 via kdesvn-portage overlay.

But when I want to start kde-4.1 I get a message telling me that there is a problem with a symlink to .kde.

So what to do?

I do have a folder named .kde and one named .kde4.1. in my /home directory but Is it safe to create a symlink from .kde to -kde4.1? I have read something on gentoo.wiki that this could cause real problems.

Any hints, please?

Hi kerneloftruth,

I cannot get this symlink working. No plan.

KDE4.1 is always telling me:
Quote:
"~/.kde is not a symlink. Please move ~/.kde to ~/.kde3.5 (if appropriate) and symlink ~/.kde to it."


I am completely stuck.

On archlinux it is working properlz but this time gentoo has driven me into problems..

Cheers.


Is ~/.kde a symlink or not ? If not, and if you were using KDE 3.5, move it to ~/.kde3.5 as explained in the error message. If this is already a symlink, just remove it and it will be created correctly for you at your next KDE4 login.

it ideally should be:

.kde3.5 & .kdesvn (real folders)

.kde (a symbolic link) either linking to .kde3.5 or .kdesvn :idea:

hi,

ive set up the kde-svn overlay and since a week i got this message on updating:
Code:


...
-- Configuring done
-- Generating done
-- Build files have been written to: /var/tmp/portage/kde-base/kscd-9999/work/kscd_build
>>> Source compiled.

 *
 * ERROR: kde-base/kscd-9999 failed.
...


is it possible to fix it by myself, or have i to wait until the devs of kde will fix it ?

I did a layman -S this morning which brought in a modified version of phonon-xine-4.1.0 which depends on

Quote:

>=media-libs/xine-lib-1.1.9
<media-libs/xine-lib-1.1.15


which yields a dependency problem since some other packages demand the new media-libs/xine-lib-1.1.15:

Quote:

!!! Multiple versions within a single package slot have been
!!! pulled into the dependency graph:

media-libs/xine-lib:1

('ebuild', '/', 'media-libs/xine-lib-1.1.13', 'merge') pulled in by
('installed', '/', 'kde-base/phonon-xine-4.1.0', 'nomerge')

('installed', '/', 'media-libs/xine-lib-1.1.15', 'nomerge') pulled in by
('installed', '/', 'kde-base/dragonplayer-4.1.0', 'nomerge')
('installed', '/', 'kde-base/phonon-xine-4.1.0', 'nomerge')

echo '>=media-libs/xine-lib-1.1.15' >> /etc/portage/package.mask
Should solve that problem if none of the packages really need 1.1.15.

But doesn't xine-libs-1.1.15 close some security-relevant holes?

i am removing kde 4.0.99 and kde-9999 and rebuilding 4.1.0 to fix the removed files. but i have run into a problem. portage doesn't want to emerge kmail giving me
Code:

Calculating dependencies                         h
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "=kde-base/kmail-4.1.0" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- kde-base/kmail-4.1.0 (masked by: )

For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or
refer to the Gentoo Handbook.
(dependency required by "kde-base/kdepim-meta-4.1.0" [ebuild])


but here is the kicker, i have that in my package.unmask and package.keywords.
do you guys know how to fix this?

Perhaps if you paste the relevent package.unmask, and package.keywords we could double check them with you

kmail was updated to 4.1.0-r1, so you need to change both files. because the '=' will miss it

I don't version specific unmask in package.unmask (because things like this happen)
and in keywords i use the slot if I can, or '<' so in this case I would do
<kde-base/kmail-4.2

thanks. i was using the guides that i found via google to install the thing in the first place since all the ones here force feed you one of the two portage 'replacements'

From what I read on bugs.gentoo.org it seems, there will not be monolithic ebuilds for kde4.1 as we used to have for the 3.x series. Is that correct?
After waiting for what seems to be an eternity for kde4.1 to hit the tree, I'll be watching about 200 packages configure just to get a complete kde, which I assume would be a lot easier and faster to build with monolithic ebuilds (which I assume would also have been ready quite some time ago)?
Damn - I still love my gentoo but this sucks bigtime!
Please someone tell me that I'm wrong and point me to the monolithic overlay.

There is nomonolithic overlay AFAIK and the monoithic point has already been discussed about somewhere in the forums.

yes. it's actually slower then building the whole thing at once(due to repeated re-opening and extracting only the parts that are needed out of the monolithic releases, or waiting for things to download). It's just useful for those who want only programs A and B from kde-network, instead of A-Z

So it's a little slower, big deal - you're running Gentoo. Gentoo is about customization. A monolithic ebuild runs counter to that.

Please don't start monolithic vs split for kde 4.x here its already been discussed.
and with kde 4.x swithing to cmake the gains would be very minimal while installing the package if any.

No discussion here - I just assumed there would be monolithic ebuilds too, as split ebuilds are a great thing but not everybody needs them.

> and with kde 4.x swithing to cmake the gains would be very minimal while installing the package if any.
Aside from the time it takes until 200+ ebuilds are finished and they finally hit the tree.

Anyway, thanks for the info.

hi, sorry for posting again but i did not get any answer on my question.
kscd-9999 just failes and prevents the rest to build with this stupid message:
Code:

make: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.


what can i do ?
