Hi,

I upgrade my DE to KDE 5 + Plasma. While emerging, "wayland" related packages are emerged as dependencies. But my xorg-server is not build with "wayland" USE flag. Is it necessary to add this flag by manual?

kde-plasma/plasma-workspace uses the wayland library to improve security of the screenlocker. It does not require a wayland compositor, so you don't need to do anything.
