KDE will take a fair old while to install!! On my system, it took about 10 mins for flux to compile, but nearer 10 hours for KDE! hehe....

    Why dont you try out Fluxbox or something like that? It's a LOT lighter than KDE.....

    I'd not used anything EXCEPT KDE till i used gentoo, and i found that within a week or so i'd learnt what i needed to know bout flux. It's easy to configure aswell

    I am using fluxbox hehe, I just want gnome and kde for apps such as k3b.

    There's no escaping it, when I emerged firefox, when I got on flux, the dependincies were gtk, several lib's...really it's logical to just go ahead and put them on.

    You could do without, I uninstalled gnome and KDE to just run fluxbox, and when I installed apollon and beep-media-player, it fetched and compiled ONLY the needed libraries... Here is my current make.conf (USE="-xmms bmp" is because I prefer beep-media-player over xmms):
    Code:
    # These settings were set by the catalyst build script that automatically built this stage
    # Please consult /etc/make.conf.example for a more detailed example
    CFLAGS="-O2 -march=pentium3 -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe"
    CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
    CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
    MAKEOPTS="-j2"
    USE="hal doc alsa png oss -arts esd gtk -gnome gtk2 acpi apache2 -apm bmp -xmms wmf -dvd -cdr -kde qt mp3 opengl sdl python sox svg v4l php"

    Update! I have now been unleashed from the boundries of linux and into the hands of BSD, running OpenBSD and loving it, it's got excellent hardware detection, it's fast, easy and secure. No other linux distro or fbsd has ever detected my Nvidia card out of the box apart from fc3. Theoretically, I could go a long way with it.
