Yes, there are still people using KDE 3.5, from the kde-sunset overlay.
Auto-mounting of external media like CDs does not work, I assume it's
because I have no HAL support for kioslaves:
leela ~ # USE=hal emerge -pv kde-base/kdebase-kioslaves:3.5
These are the packages that would be merged, in order:
Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild R ] kde-base/kdebase-kioslaves-3.5.10-r1 USE="ldap samba -
debug (-hal) -kdehiddenvisibility -openexr" 0 kB 
Total: 1 package (1 reinstall), Size of downloads: 0 kB
Portage tree and overlays:
The (-hal) probably means that this USE flag is disabled by profile. Is
there a way to enable it? Or does one have to mount CDs manually with KDE
I tried to put -hal in package.use.mask, and hal in package.use.force
(whatever thsi is). And in package.use of course, but this does not help.
When I look into the ebuild, it seems that sys-apps/dbus has to be compiled
with qt3, but there is no such USE flag for this package. Maybe that's why
hal is masked in the first place.
So, is there anything I can do about it?
