    Emerge Conflict Resolution ( Most likely a newbie question )

    This might be a stupid question but the good old American School System told me there is no such thing so I'm asking it anyway.

    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.
    Ive ran emerge -p to check and see what the blocker is and the culprit is kde-base/kdebase-3.5.2-r2. Which brings me to my problem.

    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?

    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.
