Hi all,

Just a quick post for all those out there that keep running into this problem time and again.

If you dont get this problem then i guess your one of the lucky ones but i have found the issues and a fix that actually works. Well done to all the developers and contributors of the eudev project.

I recently did a fresh install after 6 years of running on the same gentoo system, 6 years without a re-install wow what a record for any computer. Anyway my restart and shutdown buttons were of course missing from my Kmenu Arrrrrggg.

After allot of reading manuals and online documentation i narrowed it down to Consolekit, polkit and the horrible Systemd, i wont go into the painfull debuging of Systemd and the missing openrc use flag but as a tip MAKE SURE YOU PUT
use flag in your make.config :-p

Anyway i found a new project eudev NOT udev. This works well, oddly my network devices are named back to ethN again. Seems like systemd wants to call them odd names. I am sure their is good reason for this, or is their?

I removed the
use flag
emerge -avuND world
then emerged eudev
emerge -av eudev

You have to do what it prompts on the screen after install, such as restart udev
/etc/init.d/udev restart
then add
rc-update add udev-postmount default
to your default bootup.

exec ck-launch-session dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session startkde
into your ~/.xinitrc file.

Reboot your systom and KDE works as it should.

Hope someone found this useful.
