Conflicts :
- save your ass before you hose your system with an unsupported
- don't force you to have half the distro as installed requires just to
be sure there's no version conflict
- tell you A won't work with B (version). So the obvious way out is : a.
install a compatible b version b. remove B if you don't really need it
