i have successfully installed kde and want to install kdm as login manager.

when i try to emerge kdm, it starts complaining about kdebase blocking dependencies of kdm.

does anyone know how to solve this?

KDE provides kdm. Don't worry about it. You should be able to just type "kdm" as root and it should come up.

If you want it starting at boot, add DISPLAYMANAGER="kdm" to /etc/rc.conf, and change XSESSION to whatever version of KDE shows up in

ls /etc/X11/Sessions/

Have fun!

This issue has already been discussed in the topic "Blockers in KDE 3.4.1", where it was summarized by Headrush; and it is also covered in The KDE Configuration HOWTO.

Moved from Desktop Environments to Duplicate Threads.
