emerge / emerge.py is a tool to build the kde sources and its third party requirements on MS Windows.
{{Moved To Community|Guidelines and HOWTOs/Build from source/Windows}}
To start an emerge based install, checkout the sources from the svn-directory of emerge into a new directory, which we will call '''kderoot'''.
This can be accomplished with the following command:
<pre>svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/kdesupport/kdewin32/emerge</pre>
Alternatively, you can checkout the sources using a program like [http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/ TortoiseSVN].
Be sure to use a copy of Subversion that was built on Windows so that checked-out files do not use UNIX line endings.  If you check out with UNIX line endings, the ''patch'' program will fail when attempting to apply a patch whose line endings don't match the system's.
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: <pre>C:\kderoot\emerge\bin>emerge --help</pre>
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.
It is not recommended to use another layout then '''installer''' for '''directory_layout''' in the '''kdesettings.bat''' anymore (see that file for more detailed information).
Currently, there is no dependency on MinGW in any of the packages.  So, unless you call '''emerge mingw''' manually, or alter the environment configuration scripts to put the path to your MinGW bin directory in the ''PATH'' variable, compiling anything will choke.  If you run '''emerge mingw''', you will not need to modify the environment configuration scripts to point to a custom location.
If you see an error about ''cc1plus'' not being found, either add MinGW's ''\libexec\gcc\mingw32\3.4.5'' to your ''PATH'' variable or copy the contents of this directory to MinGW's ''bin'' directory.  The prior is preferred.
