My Gentoo system that used to run KDE now just gives me a console.  Trying to fix it, I typed "emerge kde" as root and I got the following:

!!! ERROR: x11-libs/qt-3.3.6-r4 failed.
Call stack:
  ebuild.sh, line 1614:   Called dyn_compile
  ebuild.sh, line 971:   Called qa_call 'src_compile'
  environment, line 3338:   Called src_compile
  qt-3.3.6-r4.ebuild, line 199:   Called die


Can you help?

Have you tried removing qt and kde completely and then re-installing them?

I hadn't thought to try that.  I'll try it now.

If your problem is still not solved, please look few lines before ebuild error - there you can find real problem.
Compilation can fail usually either because of unsatisfied dependancies or system problems like
out of space in temp directory.
Most time you can see it in compiler error output. If you use text console and cannot scroll up your output,
run emerge in following way:

emerge something > somefile.log 2>&1

Then look into 'somefile.log' bottom to find root cause of the problem.  Keep in mind, that this file can be quite huge in case of compiling things like qt or kde.

Also try synching your portage tree with "emerge --sync".

x11-libs/qt-3.3.6-r4 has been removed from the current tree and replaced with x11-libs/qt-3.3.8-r2 which might give you more luck when compiling.
