Then why is Gentoo removing broken KDE 3.5 packages?  Gentoo builds on
the sources so if KDE is releasing updated sources, then Gentoo should
be getting them too.  After all, the other distros has to have sources
to build off of to.  RPMs don't come out of thin air. 

On a side note, I'm wanting to switch my older brother from windoze to
Linux.  Given the current state of KDE, I'm not installing Linux at
all.  KDE 3.5 is not maintained, on Gentoo at least, and KDE 4 is not
stable enough for him.  I need it to be stable and working well for
him.  I would like to install KDE 3.5.10 if I could get it all to
working then upgrade him when say KDE 4.5 comes out which should be
pretty stable.
