I’m pleased to announce the availability of KDE SC 4.6.0 to another distro. You will find it in main portage tree, though currently hardmasked until bug 353129. Every major update of KDE gets inserted as hardmasked in Gentoo, as it lacks some keywords for new packages (all but amd64/x86). So, currently at least users of amd64/x86 can safely unmask and use it. I have updated the KDE guide, it now explains in detail how to install KDE SC 4.6.0 and the KDEPIM options. There is no ETA for the unmasking, since it doesn’t depend on us. As for a stabilization, KDE SC 4.6.1 is a good candidate, but we’ll have an official decision after its release and a regular meeting.
In case you find a bug regarding the installation, please take a look first at the Hints and Troubleshooting section and the Gentoo KDE buglist. Feel free to open new bugs or talk to us in #gentoo-kde (Freenode).
As a side note, KDE SC 4.6 doesn’t need hal any more. Samuli wrote a nice guide to replace it with udev and friends.
