Emerge Conflict Resolution ( Most likely a newbie question )
Whenever I try and emerge anything kde related I get a conflict like this:
emerge kdeutils Calculating dependencies... done! !!! Error: the =kde-base/ksmserver-3.5* package conflicts with another package; !!! the two packages cannot be installed on the same system together. !!! Please use 'emerge --pretend' to determine blockers.
How am I suppose to resolve this conflict if I need to remove kde-base in order to install these other kde apps. Isn't that counter intuitive?
Any help always appriciated.
Maybe ksmserver-3.5* is incompatible with kdebase-3.5.2-r2, notice the equal (=) symbol. Are you using any overlay?Put your hand in an oven for a minute and it will be like an hour, sit beside a beautiful woman for an hour and it will be like a minute, that is relativity. --Albert Einstein

Don't PM me with questions, instead post in the forums
It sounds to me like you are trying to mix the split ebuilds with the full monolithic kde ebuild.
That is a link to the split-ebuilds how to if you installed the monolithic kde.
