    Problems with emerge

    Ok the other day I ran
    emerge rsync
    Then started up my tv app and my box froze. So I restarted my box.

    I restarted it and ran

    emerge rsync
    again but this time it said it didn't have so and so file. It just bearly caught it. Not sure what the exact message was.

    So now when I do
    emerge -u world
    I get

    Calculating world dependencies ...done!
    !!! Error: the <gnome-extra/gnome-utils-2.3 package conflicts with another package.
    !!!        both can't be installed on the same system together.
    !!!        Please use 'emerge --pretend' to determine blockers.
    so I do what it tells me and I get:

    These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
    Calculating dependencies   
    emerge: there are no masked or unmasked ebuilds to satisfy "gnome-extra/gnome-utils-2.3".
    !!! Error calculating dependencies. Please correct.
    So now what. I can't emerge or update anything.
