this really doesn't address the fundamental issue here. in the first
place, that repo dependency is not mentioned anywhere here:
which would seem to be the right place for it.
more to the point, isn't "livna" one of the repos that is considered
to be incompatible with a vast majority of the others? certainly, dag
wieers seems to think so:
so what we have here is a repository (KDE) that has undocumented
dependencies, one of which is widely considered to not play nicely
none of this is making me feel better, if you catch my drift.
