Ane I hadn't read your message carefully enough anyway - sorry about that.
Sadly, it didn't cure the problem, though. You'll see from my reply to Rex
that I have uploaded the full output to http://filebin.ca/pqyess/yus.txt
First problem i can see in there is the failure to update
kdebase-workspace-python-applet. This is because kdebindings last i
checked wasn't building for F11 which means it can't be updated. I
found removing kdebase-workspace-python-applet before updating allowed
the update although obviously python based plasma applets will stop
working... My guess without looking too closely is that since that
package can't be updated other packages that depend on it and it
depends on can't be updated either causing a huge list of errors.
There are 10 kinds of people in the world: Those who understand binary
and those who don't...
