It's been awhile and I'm not up to speed with Gentoo portage. If I may ask, how do you build KDE without kdeedu and kdetoys? I tried to put USE="-kdeedu" and yet it stills build kdeedu with it.

As for urpmi, I have to say it's rare that one can't find a package with the great urpmi repos that we have in addition to main: contrib, plf, etc. And it certainly is faster than yum

There was a really good comparison article (yum, apt, urpmi, etc.) on lwn.net
