But I do not need kdelibs3-devel for kdelibs3, do I ? :-\  Anyway - 
there is something strange about this message - I tried to install 
kdelibs3-3.0.1 and the message tells me that the  kdelibs3-devel-3.0.1 
depends of kdelibs3-3.0 ......

What I am concerned about this behaviour is that I will have two 
packages in the rpm database: kdelibs3-3.0 and kdelibs3-3.0.1. If I 
could use -U (but obviously I could not) there would be only one entry. 
If I use -i I will install the package succesfully but I am afraid that 
I will have both of them in the rpm database. :-(
