In Reply to: [gentoo-dev] Old KDE support by Dan Armak
1 Clarification: suppose someone has kde-2.1.1 and wants to emerge
2 kdenetwork-2.1.1, which he doesn't have.
4 If I do nothing at all to the old KDE ebuilds, he'll be able to do it
5 successfully. However, if he updates his qt to a new, multi-qt supporting
6 versoin, he will only be able to emerge inheriting ebuilds, since appropriate
7 parameters to configure are needed which are supplied by kde.eclass. The same
8 goes for multi-kdelibs.
10 Actually, he *might* be able to use non-inheriting ebuilds with multi-*, buyt
11 he might not. Depends on the configuration. It's best and safest and surest
12 to upgrade. After all kde-2.1.x is pre-rc6 stuff.
