14 It will break several things. This is what I just went through. It
15 appears that if you emerge kde-meta, you have to have a fortran type
16 compiler. So, you may as well keep what you got if it is working. When
17 I started going down this road, I thought I could just disable fortran
18 and have less packages installed. That is not the case. I removed
19 fortran then had to replace that with even more packages than I had to
20 begin with.
22 If it works with fortran turned on, I'd leave it alone. With hindsight,
23 I should have left well enough alone anyway. It wasn't hurting a
24 thing. Watch the elog messages. It will tell you at some point to
25 either enable fortran or emerge some other package that I forget the
26 name of. That one package pulled several dependencies on my rig. YMMV.
28 Just my $0.02 for whatever that's worth.
