kde 4.2 rocks

I am barely 30 minutes into it, and it's a much better improvement over kde 4.1. This feels like a desktop env!

installed it on kubuntu and found it darn spiffy. gentoo compile in progress :D

I can quickpkg everything under /usr/kde/4.2 if you're looking for a fast install. You'll need to go back to the days of kdeprefix though ;)

BTW, watch out for some blocker packages with plasma, and also you need to have an "accessibility" use flag on gtkmm, "webkit" on PyQT4. These things crap out half way and don't alert at the beginning of the mammoth emerge.

it's at ~90/180 packages and should be done by morning. moreover it's x86 and you run amd64 :)

fixed the use flags. the one app that had some build issues was kitchensync. i --skipfirst'd it, that can wait :D

also, i finally went the "eix -Ic | grep kde | xargs emerge" way. "emerge -u world" didn't cut it.
