Title: Removal of kdeprefix support
Author: Jonathan Callen <firstname.lastname@example.org>
On 2011-06-06, kdeprefix support will be removed from all KDE ebuilds in
portage. After this is done, only one version of KDE SC will be able to
be installed at a time on a system. If you are currently using
USE=kdeprefix to install multiple versions of KDE SC simultaneously, you
will need to migrate to a non-kdeprefix installation.
To migrate, you will need to set USE=-kdeprefix (or remove the manual
unmasking of that flag in /etc/portage/profile) and rebuild all of the
installed packages in kde-base/. To reinstall these packages, you can
run: emerge --oneshot $(qlist -IC kde-base/)
