    unmerging DE's???


    Well, I have emerged kde on my gentoo-box and just wondered how I get to completely remove it from my box again? And with completely, I mean removing programs depending on kde too so it won't be any conflicts about missing libraries... Any1 now how to do this?

    Well I have never used kde so if you unmerge everything in the list of dependancies that "emerge -vt kde" provides on my system then you wont have any problems and it should encompass everything (dependant on USE flags)

    [code]

    there is probably a much easyer way to do this.. compare the output of "emerge -pvD kde" to my list.

    Thanx, but I found an even easier way which also worked:
    Code:
    cd /usr/portage/kde-base/ && emerge unmerge * && emerge --deep -u --ask world
    which first uninstalled the whole kde-base (lots of not-allready-installed packages, but the installed kde-packages got removed), and then found the dependencies of all the installed applications and reinstalled kdelibs to satisfy apollon. I did the same thing with gnome since I don't need more than flux
