Carl, in the mailing lists there is a higher probability than in the
forums that the user is actually reporting a real problem. Never
discard that possibility ;-)

Michael, you are totally correct. But that dependency comes from the
%kde_runtime_requires macro that, if hasn't changed location since
11.4, is in the kde4-filesystem package.

The thing is the package is building against a
"kde4-filesystem-4.6.5-4.2" but I don't know where it comes from.
11.4's is kde4-filesystem-4.6.0-4.1.x86_64, the Packman repo seems to
be well configured and the Tumbleweed repo hasn't a kde4-filesystem
Perhaps Tumbleweed used to have that package and now is in a cache somewhere?
