HOWTO Install KDE 3.5
II know that kde 3.5 has appear to be in testing, and I want to install it, but to install it easily, I doCode:
# ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge kde-3.5
# emerge --sync [...] #emerge --update --newuse --deep world
# ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge --update --newuse --deeep world
Did anyone knows how to do this ? Thanks a lot for any help....
Unfortunately, you do need to go and declare each package individually in the /etc/portage/package.keywords file. You might do the ACCEPT_KEYWORDS method with a --pretend flag, copy all those packages, then use some sort of script to add '~x86' after each line.
You can do a search on the gentoo forums, and they have a command to copy all of the files from the mask to /etc/portage/package.keywords file.
On another note, is there any reason (since you want to use ~arch software) that you don't just use ~arch for your whole system?
And yes, I run my desktop and laptop with "ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" in my make.conf. I feel comfortable enough to fix some problems that come up, and I like to help out with the bug reports.
And another thing to add to this is that if you emerge withCode:
echo "kde-base/kde ~x86" /etc/portage/package.keywordsCode:

ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge kde
Another option would be to add all of the packages you want into /etc/portage/package.keywords using your arch keyword.

and i have never found the need to add all the pkgs to keywords....just the pkgs that wont emerge without being added to keywords (usualy comming in with a DEPEND/DEPEND issue so just adding a few to keywords solves the problem) on my servers that do still run mostly stable pkgs
I've found the solution to my problem :
# for i in `ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge -p kde | grep ebuild | tr -s ' ' '\t' | cut -f 4`; do \ echo ">=$i ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords; done
