Packages require different versions of nodejs

Some packages I use require nodejs, and some require nodejs-lts-fermium. Those two are mutually exclusive.
So I’m currently installing and reinstalling the two different versions based on what I currently need.
Can I resolve this issue?

This is not going to be the most ideal answer, but couldn’t you just use a flatpak or app image for some of them?

You could maybe use node version manager (nvm), but personally I hate it, and think it’s a terrible solution.

Running legacy software that is no longer maintained on a rolling release distro is always a challenge.

You might also consider running it in a VM.
