I finally managed to install KDE !!! Good and thank to who helped !!!

Now, how can I emerge kde-3.1RC5?
I wish i could write something like
emerge kde-3.1RC5
If you type "emerge kde", it installs kde 3.0.4

Secondly, I would like to erase every file in /etc/ beginning with ._cfg0000. How can I do that ?
As I want to include every subdirectory, I tried something like " rm /etc/._cfg0000* -R" but it didn't work !!! SOB !!!

Any suggestion?

Thanks

edit /usr/portage/profiles/packages.mask

comment out the kde3.1rc5 packages with a #

then emerge kde (or emerge -u world if you already have kde installed)


Enjoy

Code:
find /etc -iname '._cfg????_*' -print0 | xargs -0 rm
Should work.

You need ACCEPT_KEYWORS="~x86" (if you have a PPC, put ~ppc instead of ~x86 and so on).

Code:

ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge kde

It enables the unstable branch. kde 3.1rc5 is still a release candidate.

ARRGHHH... Betas(and the RCs for KDE to, since they are considered betaish) are perm. masked... ACCEPT_KEYWORD will do you no good here I think

No no no! KDE-3.1-rc5 is perm-masked....~x86 will not help in this case!

Sorry, it does not help but it does not hurt. No need to make such a noise about it.

Yes it hurts.... next time he can't get something to merge he might use ~x86 and install some possibly buggy ebuild and blame Gentoo for being unstable.... ~x86 should be left for the developers and for people who are willing to risk their machines testing new stuff... fx the gcc ebuild currently in unstable is very dangerous and highly alpha... hell it's even marked as such..

I'll be more explicit: in this case, it won't hurt. Anyway, his question was how to emerge KDE 3.1rc5, which is unstable. I think that a discussion about wether ~arch should be used (or not) by regular users could be better discussed in a new thread.
