    Problems with emerge

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

    I restarted it and ran

    Code:
    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
    Code:
    emerge -u world
    I get

    Code:
    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:

    Code:
    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.

    Thanks

    Now I get :
    Code:
    emerge -C gnome-extra/gnome-utils-2.3
    
    !!! Couldn't find match for gnome-extra/gnome-utils-2.3
    
    >>> unmerge: No packages selected for removal.
