Hi Will,

but isn't this an error in the digikam package in KDE:UpdatedApps? 
Shouldn't be set the dependencies in a way to see that there isn't KDE 
4.7.2 installed?

A friend of mine went in the same trap with digikam (2.2.0) from this 
repo. Having "only" KDE 4.6.0 from the original openSuse distro and 
update repos. So I disabled KDE:UpdatedApps and switched her back to 
digikam 1.8.0 :-(
