Subject: Fix for kde 3.1+3.0.x installs (x86) (bug #15593) - please read
Date: Thu, 13 Feb 2003 20:10:36
1 Hello everyone,
3 Lots of people have complained that the new kdelibs-3.1-r1 and kdebase-3.1-r1 don't work for them when kde 3.0.x is installed as well: kde 3.1 shows the kde 3.0.x splashscreen and then hangs.
5 This is due to a misunderstanding: for things to work, you need to install the latest 3.0.5a revisions as well, namely kdelibs-3.0.5a-r2 and kdebase-3.0.5a-r1. Unfortunately portage isn't smart enough to include upgrades of older slots in the world update list. So kde 3.0.x must be upgraded manually to these newer revisions, or things will break.
7 A quick fix for the problem if you don't want to spend hours compiling right now is to edit /etc/env.d/65kdelibs-3.0.5a (or 65kdelibs-$ver for any older 3.0.x version $ver). Remove the line that says KDEDIRS=/usr/kde/3. Run env-update and restart kdm.
9 I apologize for the problems this must have caused. I hope this will be
10 a swift fix.
