It could be, I know there are several conflicts in the 3.2 upgrade that are related to moving applications among ports and libraries. Because of that the order of the upgrade is important and I also found because I initially did things out of order, I had to do some some fresh installs to get things back to ground zero. At one point, while trying to run down the dependencies, I ended up with two versions of KDEBase installed. That was messy. There are several related threads on the ports mailing list and here on the questions list because of the changes that have been made. People haven't put all the issues together yet, so we are just poking around in the dark to some degree. Hopefully, someone is watching who understands the interaction and can update the related ports in a more cohesive way. So, on we go... -- Regards, MIKE...
