There are so many KDE 4 threads on this forum and a couple of "kde 4" overlays (kde-testing and kdesvn-portage) that I'm really confused on what should I read and which overlay to use... 8O
I've used KDE 4.1.1 from kdesvn-portage, but now it seems that in this overlay, the ebuilds have been bumped up for kde 4.2, which I don't want to install (old kde 4.1.1 ebuilds are no longer there..) :(
What should I do ? Which overlay should I use for kde 4.1, as an end user (not developer) ? :roll:
Thanks!

If you want to stay at kde-4.1, then switch to the official kde4 overlay 'kde-testing'. Those ebuilds should then hit portage sooner or later.

kdesvn-portage obviously made the switch to focus on 4.2 and remove redundancy.

There is already a thread about the current kde4 confusion on the forum: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-707764.html

Guide for switching from any previous kde4 installation (including the one from kdesvn-portage) to kde-testing: http://tinyurl.com/475e5e.

Note: the guide is in alpha stage and the author makes no guarantee whatsoever that it works, or that it won't blow up your bicycle.
