Have u seen this issue? KMOD and module-init-tools conflict and I am getting error when I try to upgrade with changes in /etc/make.conf
This is the error
[blocks B ] sys-apps/kmod ("sys-apps/kmod" is blocking sys-apps/module-init-tools-3.16-r1)
[blocks B ] sys-apps/module-init-tools ("sys-apps/module-init-tools" is blocking sys-apps/kmod-7)

What should I do to prevent the error?

kmod is the successor of module-init-tools. So just unmerge module-init-tools and emerge kmod like this:
Code:
emerge -C module-init-tools && emerge --oneshot -v kmod

Please don't shutdown/reboot the system while neither module-init-tools nor kmod is installed or else your system might not be able to boot anymore.

Thanks. The problem now is that after using the command above and updating I find that ifconfig is not working for me when I have logged as a root user but it works if I login as a non-root user. I get an error /sbin/ifconfig: No such file or directory. /sbin: No such file or directory. However, I am able to ping any website from root. It is a weird problem.

vkaul11,

ifconfig has moved from /sbin to /bin.

I've made a symlink in /sbin for it so I don't need to remember the move.
