Sorry to reply to my own post but it seems that my world file had all of the kde
programs listed with ":4.5"
I don't know how this has happened but I removed the :4.5 from the lines and
now if I run an emerge I get the following:-
Total: 268 packages (24 upgrades, 12 new, 228 in new slots, 4 reinstalls, 230
uninstalls), Size of downloads: 424,321 kB
Conflict: 459 blocks
Would you like to merge these packages? [Yes/No]
Why would 228 packages be installed in new slots?
