    kde-testing overlay’s kde4 live status

    Some changes in KDE’s svn repository broke some live gentoo ebuilds today… This happened because some applications (namely ark and nepomuk) now depend on a new package in extragear/libs called libknotificationitem.

    I now have my personal gentoo overlay over at github. For those not familiar with overlays, they are something like a “repository”. They allow you to add and use ebuilds out of the official portage tree. In my overlay, called “wirelay”, I usually add fixes from bugs.gentoo.org that I need which haven’t reached the tree […]
