Starting a fresh install -ish

Hi all,
After emerging kde meta and updating all new packages with the right flags i still got a few problems. In KDE the lisa browser does not work even if i run it again, its in rc-update and i can confirm it loads. Im not at home so i cant paste error logs however it says somethign about root access.

I was thinking that it might be an idea to remove all config files and start again with KDE as my first install. Ive downloaded all the sources but im happy to have to emerge them all again.

Im also running ivman because i needed it with gnome, is it needed with KDE?

The apps i installed in gnome, are duplicated by KDE alternatives in somecases, should i remove them permanently? like the sources can stay just not compiled, i think ill stick with KDE.

Anyway back to school -.-
