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

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.
