Hi everyone...

After a general update of my Portage tree (portage-20091108), i found that KDE is completely masked for SPARC, so i must unmerge KDE 3.5.10 for a clean world update.
And i can see that there is no KDE 4 development for SPARC.

So... what can we expect now about KDE on SPARC?... Should SPARC KDE-lovers sit and wait or cry forever?

Is XFCE a good alternative?
I hate Gnome... (one of USE flags is "-gnome" in /etc/make.conf)

Thanks.

x11-libs/qt-webkit SIGBUS'd on sparc, which was fixed only yesterday, and it's a prereq for KDE4.

now that it's fixed, KDE4 *will be* keyworded for ~sparc.

and I'm also maintaining Xfce4, so I can warmly recommend it for the meantime 8)

Wow!... that was fast...
Thanks for the answer, and for keeping my hope alive.

That's really good news.

Have you an idea of when, approximatively, it'll be keyworded ? Just to know when my next update will occur :)

It might take a while considering our sparc team is about one man team at the moment (not me). But if you want definite answers, ask around in #gentoo-sparc on Freenode.

FYI kde-4.3.3 has been marked ~sparc.

I'll try to stabilize it next week.

Thought i should update the status on this...i asked to drop sparc keywords from kde because i'm alone on the sparc team and i can't keep up with something as big as kde.
