Here's what I've had to do... In /etc/portage/package.use.mask: kde-base/kdebase-kioslaves -hal app-cdr/k3b -hal In /etc/portage/package.keywords (because newer masked ebuilds of these two packages solve some build issues): kde-base/kdelibs:3.5 ~amd64 kde-base/kcontrol:3.5 ~amd64 In /etc/portage/package.unmask: kde-base/kdelibs:3.5 kde-base/kcontrol:3.5 Hope this helps... -- + Brent A.
