Thanks for the replies,
I put kde-base/kde-l10n in the package.mask file but got the message below when I ran "emerge kde-meta":
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy ">=kde-base/kde-l10n-4.3.3[-kdeprefix]" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- kde-base/kde-l10n-4.3.3 (masked by: package.mask)
Also, even though kde-base/kde-l10n says "0kb", it will still download each and every language pack because that is what happened when I installed KDE 4.3.1. As a matter of fact, there were dozens of packages that said "0kb" and it still downloaded the packages anyway.
I put LINGUAS="en_GB" in /etc/make.conf but portage is still downloading each and every language pack. I'm assuming "en_GB is English because I could not see anything for "en".
Thanks in advance,
Sorry, I spoke too soon when I said the packages with "0kb will download. If a package says "0kb, it will not download because it is part of one of the meta packages that have already downloaded. The only exception to the rule would be the kde-l10n language pack package and the only reason it downloads is because the nls use flag is enabled. See my last post where I corrected the problem.
