Basil, the first question I would ask you is why do you think it's important to
update your KDE packages on a daily basis?
I don't update/upgrade KDE 'packages' daily.

I do 'zypper refresh/patch/up' daily and then double check this with
YaST>Packages>Update if newer packages available.

Unless there's some specific bug
you're tacking and hoping to have resolved with an individual package update,
this is mostly an excerside in futility. What would you possibly have to gain?

Outside of the time of KDE point release announcements when I'm expecting a
version upgrade, I don't check and am not concerned with pacakge updates from
the release:410 repo, and you shouldn't be either.

Cheers the noo,

Graham is referring to the fact that your very first repository is not
normally needed, (I don't have that at all) and is subjecting you to
daily updates.

Thanks John - and Graham.

I have been using this (first) repository since KDE 4.7.3 and have never had this trouble until ~week ago.

It appears that in the past the ../release/KDE:/4xx repository kept up-to-date with the openSUSE branding which was in ./update/12.x repo. Either this or the .../update/12x repo did not get a "rogue" bunch of openSUSE branding files which were ahead of what was in the KDE:/4xx/ repo.

Anyway, your drawing attention to this KDE: repo made me have a closer look and I now solved the problem by giving the KDE: a lower priority number (from 99 down to 90) and doing this got rid of the dependency failures.

(A similar problem exists with regards to k3b: what is available from packman is mismatched with what is in the ..../release/KDE: repo but I have rectified this little hassle as well.)
