Description Conrad Kostecki gentoo-dev 2018-10-28 21:29:44 UTC
>>> Installing (1 of 2) net-firewall/iptables-1.8.1::gentoo
 * checking 218 files for package collisions
 * This package will overwrite one or more files that may belong to other
 * packages (see list below). You can use a command such as `portageq
 * owners / <filename>` to identify the installed package that owns a
 * file. If portageq reports that only one package owns a file then do
 * NOT file a bug report. A bug report is only useful if it identifies at
 * least two or more packages that are known to install the same file(s).
 * If a collision occurs and you can not explain where the file came from
 * then you should simply ignore the collision since there is not enough
 * information to determine if a real problem exists. Please do NOT file
 * a bug report at unless you report exactly
 * which two packages install the same file(s). See
 * for tips on how
 * to solve the problem. And once again, please do NOT file a bug report
 * unless you have completely understood the above message.
 * Detected file collision(s):
 *      /sbin/ebtables-save
 *      /sbin/ebtables-restore
 * Searching all installed packages for file collisions...
