i have installed kde by emege -av kde-meta
with emerge --sync ; emerge -uaDvN world, emerge will install many many kde updates too.
i do not will these kde-updates, but the rest of the updates, how do i say emerge this?
i have to mask all newer versions of kde, but how?
what have i to add in the /etc/portage/packages.mask file?

I don't understand why you don't want to update kde, but you can use command
Code:
# qlist -Iv kde-plasma/* | sed -e 's/^/>/' >> /etc/portage/package.mask/plasma

for create a list in package.mask.
You can change kde-plasma/* with kde-frameworks/* and kde-apps/* for mask all kde components.
My advice, however, is to update always all packages.

SarahS93,

This is a verybadthing. Expect to see your out of date KDE depend on other packages that portage wants to update.
Gentoo is a rolling distro, roll with it.
