Well there is always something to learn. I created a kde.repo. My aspell
is also aspell-o-60.6-5.fc11.i586 and the directory under /usr/lib is
also aspell-0.60 but no dictionaries within. If the aspell on your
system is later yum does not think so on my machine.

I am boggled by the idea that kde has its own separate repository for
f11. What would that be. I installed kde through the fedora repos so I
would expect all kde updates would come from fedora repos.

Can someone explain all this? Especially since aspell is not a
particularly kde product.

Any further testimony on this matter. Is it Bugzilla time or not?
These days the necessities of life cost you about three times what they
used to, and half the time they aren't even fit to drink.
