emerge / emerge.py is a tool to build the kde sources and its third party requirements on MS Windows.

To start an emerge based install, checkout the sources from the svn-directory

trunk/kdesupport/kdewin32/emerge

into a new kderoot directory. Copy the file kdesettings-environment.bat into the folder kderoot\etc, rename it to kdesettings.bat and change it according to your needs. You can get 'some' help if you run:

C:\kderoot\emerge\bin>emerge --help

Below the directory kderoot\emerge\portage you have the categories as subdirectories which contain individual packages.

To build every required package for e.g. kdebase enter emerge kdebase. If you want to make a dry run, add the option -p to it.

emerge is mostly usable together with the kdewin-installer but we're currently still working on some packages which are packaged in a wrong way. To use emerge with the installer, you have to change the directory_layout in the kdesettings.bat to installer (see that file for more detailed information).
