I believe so. Anytime there could possibly be a version conflict, I usually
opt to only have one version installed. Even though it says that the two can
work side-by-side, I'd uninstall 2.x, install 1.14-1, get it working, then
(if you're brave) see if you can have both versions installed together.
I haven't noticed any drawbacks to having 1.14-1 instead of 2.x, but then
again, I may not be using anything that *relies* on 2.x.
Let me know how it works out for you.
