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:
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.
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.
