Subject: [gentoo-user] kactivitymanagerd endless update loop

1 Hi,
3 my system is still KDE 4 with the help of kde-sunset. However, I face an
4 endless loop installing kactivitymanagerd. The package has been in group
5 kde-base for KDE 4 and so it is in kde-sunset. However in central portage
6 tree it has been moved to group kde-plasma.
8 The annoying part is now, that portage is constantly moving with each sync
9 the installed kde-base/kactivitymanagerd-4.13.3-r1 into group kde-plasma
10 with the result that portage tries to install kde-
11 base/kactivitymanagerd-4.13.3-r1 as new package. Which fails, because
12 portage detects that some install files already exist.
14 So I have to uninstall kde-plasma/kactivitymanagerd-4.13.3-r1 and let
15 portage install again kde-base/kactivitymanagerd-4.13.3-r1 until the next
16 sync.
18 How can I stop portage from moving the package into another group?
20 Cheers,
21 Jörg
