Hello,

I did a fresh install of Gentoo today.
I did enable the desktop profile.
After that I did emerge --update --deep --newuse world.

And I see that I have 131 packages to update among qt4 packages.

How can that be even I don't have a DE installed yet.

emerge -p --depclean $(qlist -IC x11-libs/qt)

Probably not the answer on a new install. Look at your effective USE flags (with "emerge --info"). You'll probably see that X and/or qt support is on by default. It's actually normal when you switch to one of the desktop profiles to see a lot of rebuilds for "new use". I typically get my installation bootable and up to date with one of the base profiles (e.g., default/linux/x86/10.0) before switching to a desktop profile. I'd just check the USE flags, make corrections as necessary, and then let whatever's left happen. Totally normal.

You know, emerge -pvNDt world and equery $(qlist -IC x11-libs/qt) are powerful tools. They will tell you more than just that it is a dependency. Its the right tool for the job. You can pipe their output to a pager since it is unlikely you will be able to view the output on a terminal. This is done by appending | less to the command. I don't want bash, but depclean is the wrong tool for the job.

You probably just installed some X already. For example, root depends on qt-qt3support and dev-python/PyQt depends on x11-libs/qt-opengl.

Oke,

So as I understand you right.

1) Switch to a base profile with eselect profile list and then eselect profile set x
2) Update the box ( emerge --update --deep --newuse world)

Can I also install later on Mate when I don't switch later to a desktop profile ?

@theDoctor : I only install x11-drivers and x11-base/xorg-server.

That is enough to explain it: equery g --depth=5 x11-base/xorg-server-1.13.1 | grep qt gives

Code:
 [  3]  x11-libs/qt-core-4.8.4-r1   
 [  4]  x11-libs/qt-gui-4.8.4   
 [  5]  app-admin/eselect-qtgraphicssystem-1.1.1   
 [  5]  x11-libs/qt-script-4.8.4   
 [  5]  x11-libs/qt-dbus-4.8.4   
 [  5]  x11-libs/qt-qt3support-4.8.4

Thanks,

Wierd dependencies at this time.
I could understand that qt depends on xorg but otherwise I still find it wierd,

But case closed for me.
