New!: the beta1 builds are now in gentopia ( see http://gentopia.gentooexperimental.org for more details ). They are all marked ~x86 so you can skip the first trick.
THIS IS A PACKAGE.MASK'ED PACKAGE ONLY USE THIS IF YOU PLAN ON HELPING WITH DEVELOPMENT

For those of you seeing the rather large mask and freaking out, here's a simply way to unmask kde-3.5_beta1:

first off, if you're not on ~amd64:

Code:

main ~ # cd /usr/portage
main portage # for packages in kde-base/*; do echo "${packages} ~amd64" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords; done


ok, that'll take care of missing keywords stuff, now while in the same directory:

Code:

main portage # for packages in kde-base/*; do echo ">=${packages}-3.5_beta1" >> /etc/portage/package.unmask; done


You'll now be able to take on the kde 3.5 ebuilds stuff.

Mod Edit: made sticky - tomk
Edit: fixed package.unmasking and update the topic
Edit: Re-RE-fixed package.unmasking and added note about gentopia
mod edit: unstuck --Earthwings

I followed your how-to, but it did not work. emerge -pv kde-meta, still shows kde-3.4.2. I keep running into this problem. if i do an emerge -pv kde, it shows kde-3.5_alpha1, using the same should-just-work method.

EDIT: forgive me, i am ridiculous, i changed ~amd64 to ~x86. I didn't realize the ebuilds were for ~amd64 only.

Shouldn't it be this one? With a "=" infront of the packages name?
Code:

main portage # for packages in kde-base/*; do echo "=${packages}-3.5_alpha1" >> /etc/portage/package.unmask; done

I haven't had much luck with compiling these, I can compile a basic KDE, but alot of things like akregator, kopete, and a few others

Same here, kopete, akregator and kscd don't compile cleanly.

So far everything else seems OK so far.

remove kdeenablefinal from the use flags and set makeopts="-j1" they'll compile. You also need to remove the pbbuttons patch from the kmilo ebuild

I had no luck. I dont need kmilo and dont have it installed. So the patch thing does not apply.

Code:

[ /home/i92guboj ]-[0]: USE="-kdeenablefinal" MAKEOPTS="-j1" emerge kopete -pv
These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild  N    ] kde-base/kopete-3.5_alpha1  -arts -debug -kdeenablefinal +kdexdeltas -sametime +ssl -xinerama -xmms 0 kB


:cry: But, wtf?, only my brother do use im, so...

dunno, i do not use the meta ebuilds (low on diskspace or why do you use them?) - but as you have might read, the "normal" kde 3.5 alpha compiled fine for all of us without "kdeanablefinal" in the USEflags.
me and others are using it since weeks.

ah, btw.. i removed 3.4.2 completly, and now an emerge -uDv world likes to pull in kde-18n from 3.4.. but i can live with that for the time beeing.

KDE ebuilds are slotted, both can be installed.

I found 3.5 alpha1 just as stable and completely removed 3.4

The feature plan gives a good idea of the changes.

The KDE 3.5 beta1 version of kopete and kscd don't seem to need the work around suggested above. :)

I just copied all the alpha1 split ebuilds to beta1 and digested them and all seem to compile fine except for kpersonalizer.
(At least the ones I am using. :) )

Beta1 has now been released and is in portage. The guide has now been updated for beta1 unmasking (and other fixes in general).

So far the basic kdebase stuff just compiles fine. However, there's still some packages that don't compile. We'll see what happens next.

well, everything compiled fine here (even using kdeenablefinal), but no luck with kde-i18n (german).
but this doesnt seem to be a gentoo problem.. the source doesnt compile either.

One such package is juk, I made a fixed ebuild on bugzilla. Also, umbrello won't build for me, but I think it was a error in the source and thus is probably a problem upstream. I'll file a bug when I have more time to after the weekend, if it's not been by then.

Slight typo -- $>={packages} should be >=${packages}

Thanks for the useful commands!

Why is this masked with ~amd64? Can I install it for x86?

Yes, you can. Just do:

Code:

main ~ # cd /usr/portage
main portage # for packages in kde-base/*; do echo "${packages} ~amd64" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords; done
