I just returned from a short vacation and wound up upgrading KDE, gcc and several other big packages. This caused some pain that I am trying to sort out.

My main problem is that KDE-4.14.2 won't start. KDM runs and I can use it to start up xfce, which runs fine.

When I tried to do a startkde from a successful startx, I got the message, krandrstartup: File Not Found.

So far I have run python-updater, perl-cleaner --all, emerge --newuse --deep --update --wtih-bdeps=y world, revdep-rebuild and rebuilt kdm and kstart with no change. I am out of ideas.

Any thoughts on what to do to get KDE running?

emerge --info follows:

krandrstartup and krandrtray have been replaced by the new KDE screen manager: kscreen.
There is a bug already filed about your issue: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=524266 which is marked as RESOLVED-FIXED;
according to comment #4, commenting out line 108 of /usr/bin/startkde script will do the trick...

That fixed it and I could start up.!

xorg.conf was also screwed up (my dual monitors were oriented wrong) but I was able to fix that.

Thank you for your help.
