Hello,

Trying to emerge qt-5, it fails early on with the error:
Code:

ACCESS DENIED  mkdir:     /usr/qt/3/etc/settings
QSettings::sync: failed to open '/root/.qt/qt_plugins_3.2rc.tmp' for writing


which is repeated dozens and dozens of times. I suspect the reason is that I don't have a /usr/qt/3/etc directory, so the mkdir is failing. I just made the directories by hand, we'll see if it works now.

This is not the first time I've emerged qt-5, and I've not had this issue before. Does it sound familiar to anyone? Maybe one of my environment variables got messed up?

EDIT:
Well, creating the /usr/qt/3/etc and /usr/qt/3/etc/settings directories manually seems to have fixed it. Weird that it all of the sudden needs this directory, when it didn't need it on previous emerges...

thanks for any thoughts,
LMCBoy
