after installing gentoo, i decided to run emerge --update --ask world. this is immediately after the install and it gave me an error saying i had a couple files that can't be on the same machine together (something about /login/pam IIRC). it said to run emerge --pretend. well, i got to messing with stuff, and trying to update and i kept getting that warning about the file and nothing would happen. so i finally ran --depclean which looked like it got rid a bunch of stuff, i'm assuming was related to that file. then i ran emerge --update --deep world which is installing some 55 things... is this normal behavior?

Some packages are blocked because other packages are installed that have same function. These packages could be selected because you set a certain USE flag that wasn't there before, for example. This happens more, no need to worry if you can fix it ...
