Fwd: How to switch smoothly to kdelibs4?

Hi Brad,

I am afraid you are right about this:
> Nice feature but I think you need to keep an eye on versions of deps. I don't know that "port deactivate kde4 && port activate kde3" would revert kde3 deps that may have been upgraded to an unusable version.
> Maybe keeping track of what was installed prior to upgrading could be useful.
> port -q rdeps --no-build kdelibs3 | sed -e 's/^[[:space:]]*//' | sort | xargs port -q installed >> rdeps_kdelibs3.txt.

since as in my other post entitled "Port can't be deactivated, although deps also deactivated" described I seem to run into first signs of this trap.

Too bad that it is not so easy as I thought. :(
