15 Well, you only need meta packages if you want to install everything that ships
16 together upstream. You could just emerge the split packages you want such as
17 e.g. konqueror, kcontrol, etc..

21 There certainly is an easier way than reinstalling for this issue. What you've
22 posted thus far actually suggests that you haven't made a mess out of your
23 system yet as it showed kdepim and kdebase as not yet installed. In that case
24 you just need to stop trying to install monolithic packages.
26 Otherwise you need to unmerge the monolithic packages you've installed
27 with --nodeps and remerge the split packages that they've overwritten. Code
28 Listing 3.1 in the above document shows you how to get the name of the
29 packages any monolithic package would overwrite.
31 E.g. if you've emerged kdebase-meta and kdebase at the same time and you want
32 to stick with split packages you can do this:
34 # emerge -Cva kdebase
35 # function die() { echo $@; }
36 # source $(portageq portdir)/eclass/kde-functions.eclass
37 # emerge --oneshot -va $(get-child-packages kde-base/kdebase)
