4 After setting the appropriate flags in the 'packages.keywords' file, I
5 emerged all of the KDE packages to 3.5.6 (a few don't have a 3.5.6
6 version yet). I also had to emerge some new packages.
7
8 After merging these packages, emerge immediately wanted to downgrade
9 them, complaining about "Masked Packages". I can't provide the text of
10 that (I can't even read the whole thing), since it will not pipe to a file.
11
12 Any suggestions? Should I just downgrade everything to 3.5.5 and wait
13 until 3.5.6 becomes stable? Are there packages I should downgrade or
14 get rid of?
15
16 By the way, KDE seems to work fine, even with these 'problems', but I am
17 concerned that it might fail at some point.
18
19 These are the packages that would be merged, in order:
