busted kde update

Greets all;

FC6 box here, trying to keep it up to date.

I just had to revert the kdepim here to version 3.5.6-0.2.fc6.i386.rpm.

Why?  It seems the recent update here, that put in 3.5.6-6 which is only 
half-assed done due to a missing library message from smart or yum if I 
include any of the graphics stuff, is also accompanied by missing libraries 
such as /usr/lib/kde3/kcm_kmail.la, a minor detail that disables kmail's 
ability to send mail, or to access its configuration from the pulldown.  Why 
the deps resolution didn't catch that I have NDI.

The other missing library that prevents the full update is (from yumex)

13:27:03 : failure: kdnssd-avahi-devel-0.1.3-0.1.20060713svn.fc6.i386.rpm from 
release: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

That's from checking ONLY the kdegraphics to be updated.  Dependencies pull in 
a couple of -devel packages, and they pull in this.

I don't use avahi here, but if I try to remove it, it will also  rip out about 
150 megs worth of other kde stuff, and that's a bad dog, no bisquit to me.

So what became of the 3.5.6-6.fc6 updates that have been visible for a week 
now?  Too much of this maybe?

Cheers, Gene
