Subject: [gentoo-dev] Announce: new QT and KDE ebuilds
Date: Sat, 29 Dec 2001 11:23:08
1 Hello everyone,
3 A new batch of ebuilds is on cvs. This changes yet again the way qt and kde
4 ebuilds work. This time, though it really should be final. I'm sorry about
5 any inconveniences caused.
7 To upgrade:
8 1) emerge --clean rsync (or cvs update); the --clean is important here.
10 2) merge x11-libs/qt, kde-base/kdelibs, kde-base/kdebase in that order.
12 3) unmerge all versions of x11-libs/qt-x11 and all but the latest versions of
13 kde-base/kdelibs and kde-base/kdebase.
15 4) If any QT/KDe program doesn't work, try remerging it and unmerging the
16 previous revision. If that doesn't help, post here.
18 Summary of some of the more important changes:
19 1. i18n ebuilds have been added for kde 2.2.2 and koffice 1.1.1; they are in
20 the app-i18n directory.
21 2. All kde/qt ebuilds should now be working, with or without the kde/qt use
22 flags. Lots of fixes have gone in.
23 3. All non-latest revision ebuilds have been removed.
24 4. objprelink support has been removed. However, it will be back in the form
25 of general prelinking support for all apps!
26 5. The x11-libs/qt-x11 ebuild has been broken up; there is now an x11-libs/qt
27 ebuild which installs the libs and tools, and a app-doc/qt-docs ebuild which
28 installs the documentatio, tutorials, examples etc. and is only needed by
29 developers of QT apps.
30 6. Anyone's who's working with inheriting ebuilds, please read
31 /usr/portage/eclass/doc/news.txt and (re)read howto.*.
