I want to upgrade KDE from version 3.5.6 to 3.5.7.
I read somewhere, that if one wants to pull the whole KDE, it is nescessary to emerge kde-meta, which has the whole KDE as dependencies. This seems to be true as I did emerge pretend.
There are also other 'meta' packages for parts of KDE.
- Code: Select all
# emerge -pu world | grep meta
[ebuild N ] kde-base/kdetoys-meta-3.5.7
[ebuild N ] kde-base/kdeutils-meta-3.5.7 USE="crypt -lirc"
[ebuild U ] kde-base/kdewebdev-meta-3.5.7 [3.5.6]
[ebuild N ] kde-base/kdeadmin-meta-3.5.7
[ebuild U ] kde-base/kdenetwork-meta-3.5.7 [3.5.6] USE="-wifi*"
[ebuild N ] kde-base/kdeedu-meta-3.5.7
[ebuild U ] kde-base/kdegraphics-meta-3.5.7 [3.5.6] USE="-imlib* -scanner*"
[ebuild U ] kde-base/kdeartwork-meta-3.5.7 [3.5.6]
[ebuild U ] kde-base/kdegames-meta-3.5.7 [3.5.6]
[ebuild U ] kde-base/kdemultimedia-meta-3.5.7 [3.5.6]
[ebuild U ] kde-base/kdeaddons-meta-3.5.7 [3.5.6]
[ebuild N ] kde-base/kdepim-meta-3.5.7 USE="pda"
[ebuild U ] kde-base/kde-meta-3.5.7 [3.5.6] USE="-accessibility*"
When I select these for update, they want to pull the whole KDE 3.5.7 although I do not have installed everything in my machine. For example I do not want to have KDE games installed but portage insist to install them.
So, how do I upgrade only those packages, that already are in my system without installing all the stuff I do not need ?
I selected those existing package by hand and updated them one by one, but I sill have these meta packages hanging there as those that need to be updated.
