Subject: How to mask KDE 4.6.2?
Date: Sun, 3 Apr 2011 18:56:54 +0200
Hi there!

KDE 4.6.2 ebuilds arrived in the kde overlay, but the distfiles are not on 
the mirror servers yet. I'm on ~amd64, this stuff is not masked for me. So 
my world update stops due to missing files.No big problem, but still a 
little annoying, and I would like to know how one should deal with this.

I tried to put a link to $LAYMAN/kde/Documentation/package.mask/kde-4.6 in 
/etc/portage/package.mask, but that of course masks KDE 4.6 completely.

So I removed the kde overlay. This works, but it would downgrade stuff like 
amarok-9999 which I am testing. I tried to avoid this by putting <media-
sound/amarok-9999 into package.mask, but it has no effect. Then I copied 
media-sound/amarok from the kde overlay into my local overlay, now I can 
update.

Is there a better solution? This situation seems to happen with every minor 
KDE update.

	Wonko
