Well, qt-meta, tqtinterface and dbus-tqt should be working fine from the
I ran into some other problem though with one or two other ebuilds not
finding "tqglobals.h" or similar. Those tqt-header files are located in
/usr/include/tqt and not /ust/qt/3/include. So the path needs to be added
to the configure options but i am not sure what the best way is to do
that... But currently this is only for trinity-misc/kshutdown  ( just ran
sed over the files, which seems very silly to me, there has to be a better

I always liked the automount feature;)

Yes i think it's a good idea to include hal, but we should look out for
blockers (there were some i think from pciutils if i remember correct)

After looking closer at the eclasses... uhhmmm lets keep them around until
they have absolutely no use. Diving in there might be hard and not get us
very far... I did patch the following though to get rid of the kde3-dir
(also some 'designer-plugins' weren't found)
-       export kde_widgetdir="$KDEDIR/$(get_libdir)/kde3/plugins/designer"
+       export kde_widgetdir="$KDEDIR/$(get_libdir)/trinity/plugins/designer"

Ok, if you can take a look at the repository i think the stuff in there
should be working for x86/amd64.
There is also a Documentation/TODO with packages i haven't gotten around
to or couldn't get working yet like kdeartwork or kde-i18n..

That should do it.

To be able to push into the repo i need to give you access and you need to
upload your pubkey to github if i remember correct...

Fixed! I was missing the kdebase-kioslaves.

Also fixed, though i don't really know why it wasn't working before...
firefox and urxvt were in the same PATH and only firefox worked... anyway
i changed the startkde-script and now it seems working fine.

Oh linker.. i had fun with that getting kshutdown working it always
complains about unknown option "--sort-common". Can't help you there much

PS: kontact is next on my todo does it really hard-depend on knotes now?
