Hi everybody !

This is a noob question but that's the first time this problem occur :oops:

Quote:

Calculating world dependencies ...

[blocks B ] <=x11-themes/gnome-themes-2.8.2 (is blocking x11-themes/gtk-engines-2.6.3)
[blocks B ] <app-admin/gnome-system-tools-1.1.91 (is blocking app-admin/system-tools-backends-1.2.0)
[blocks B ] gnome-extra/nautilus-media (is blocking media-video/totem-1.0.2-r1)


So, it happen when both of package cannot be installed at the same time on the system, but which one to remove ???
How can i know which package is the best to keep for my system ???

Thanks for all answers !

Only you can tell which package you like best.

But heres a couple of tips

Make a quickpkg of the current package you use, if you are about to try an unknown package. This way should you
want to go back to your old package you wont need to recompile, just. install.

If you not sure about the new package, do the same make a quickpkg, go back to the old, and do some quick
comparisons.

In this case, I know that some of the older gnome packcages (themes-extras) need to be removed to upgrade GNOME. I did that and so far haven't lost anything. I think maybe those themes are included somewhere else now.

Just my $0.02.
