Hello there. I am new to gentoo and new to linux in general. I am trying to do an:
emerge -vuD world
but it gets a conflict everytime. The conflict says:

Calculating world dependencies ...done!

!!! Error: the =x11-libs/openmotif-2.2.3-r3 package conflicts with another package.
!!! both can't be installed on the same system together.
!!! Please use 'emerge --pretend' to determine blockers.


Next I did a pretend world and got this:

Calculating world dependencies ...done!

[blocks B ] =x11-libs/openmotif-2.2.3-r3 (is blocking x11-libs/motif-config-0.9)
[ebuild U ] sys-apps/man-pages-2.17 [2.16] +nls 1,687 kB
[ebuild N ] app-misc/pax-utils-0.1.4 -caps 43 kB
[ebuild U ] sys-apps/portage-2.0.53 [2.0.51.22-r3] -build (-selinux) 229 kB
*** Portage will stop merging at this point and reload itself,
recalculate dependencies, and complete the merge.


Next I tried to emerge --unmerge motif-config but got this error:

--- Couldn't find motif-config to unmerge.

>>> unmerge: No packages selected for removal.


So if the package isn't installed then why am I getting this error conflict? Thank you very much for the help and please keep your repsonses to a newbie level so that I can understand them :) Thanks again.

remove the blocked package as its functionality is provided by a newer package and is they are supposed to be mutually exclusive.

So,

Get rid of openmotif
Code:

emerge -C x11-libs/openmotif


Then run
Code:

emerge -avuD world

thanks for replying so quickly and thanks for explaining that to me. I unmerged the one package and then the update world worked perfectly. Thanks again.
