Frontpage of pm-utils HOMEPAGE http://pm-utils.freedesktop.org/ says:

"We include some basic power management hooks. The individual hooks can conflict with the ones provided by the laptop-mode-tools scripts, so you should either just remove laptop-mode-tools entirely or pick and choose between which package should handle what powersaving functionality. More hooks to handle powersave functionality we do not currently handle are welcome, provided they are general enough to apply across a wide range of use cases."

Ebuild ChangeLog says:

Block app-laptop/laptop-mode-tools wrt upstream ChangeLog; "Update git
tree packaging to conflict with laptop-mode-tools. The new powermanagement
scripts conflict with laptop-mode-tools. Make sure both are not installed
at the same time."

Package ChangeLog says:

Update git tree packaging to conflict with laptop-mode-tools

The new powermanagement scripts conflict with laptop-mode-tools.
Make sure both are not installed at the same time.

Why do you need them at same time? :roll:

EDIT: See https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=327443 , productive comments welcome :-)

There's versions in tree now that don't block. Any feedback is welcome...
