Subject: [gentoo-announce] Announce: new QT and KDE ebuilds
Date: Sat, 29 Dec 2001 11:23:08
Hello everyone,

A new batch of ebuilds is on cvs. This changes yet again the way qt and kde 
ebuilds work. This time, though it really should be final. I'm sorry about 
any inconveniences caused.

To upgrade:
1) emerge --clean rsync (or cvs update); the --clean is important here.

2) merge x11-libs/qt, kde-base/kdelibs, kde-base/kdebase in that order.

3) unmerge all versions of x11-libs/qt-x11 and all but the latest versions of 
kde-base/kdelibs and kde-base/kdebase.

4) If any QT/KDe program doesn't work, try remerging it and unmerging the 
previous revision. If that doesn't help, post here.

Summary of some of the more important changes:
1. i18n ebuilds have been added for kde 2.2.2 and koffice 1.1.1; they are in 
the app-i18n directory.
2. All kde/qt ebuilds should now be working, with or without the kde/qt use 
flags. Lots of fixes have gone in.
3. All non-latest revision ebuilds have been removed.
4. objprelink support has been removed. However, it will be back in the form 
of general prelinking support for all apps!
5. The x11-libs/qt-x11 ebuild has been broken up; there is now an x11-libs/qt 
ebuild which installs the libs and tools, and a app-doc/qt-docs ebuild which 
installs the documentatio, tutorials, examples etc. and is only needed by 
developers of QT apps.
6. Anyone's who's working with inheriting ebuilds, please read 
/usr/portage/eclass/doc/news.txt and (re)read howto.*.
