I have a fresh installation of Gentoo/Plasma.

When I now try to install cifs-utils, sys-libs/db-5.3.28-r5 will be installed in a new slot, alongside the already installed version 6.0.35-r3. But that is impossible due to file collisions (/usr/lib64/libdb.so) between the two versions.

I masked all versions of sys-libs/db higher than 5.3.28-r5, unmerged the installed version 6.0.35-r3 en merged the older version. I had to execute emerge @preserved-rebuild to rebuild a few packages against the older version but that worked OK.

I do not know if what I did is correct and if not, how should I solve this problem?

Thank you, I looked for bugs linked to the package and hence did not found this one.
