Description of problem:
When updating a box, this became a showstopper:

Error: kdemultimedia-extras conflicts with kdemultimedia-extras-nonfree <

This is pretty interesting, because:
$ rpm -q kdemultimedia-extras-nonfree

denotes that the installed version is NOT lower than 3.5.6-3. I don't know what
should be fixed here.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

This is due to a wrong epoch in the Conflicts tag. The Conflicts lists epoch 6, 
whereas kdemultimedia-extras-nonfree-3.5.6-3.lvn6 actually has no epoch (which 
is essentially the same as epoch 0). 0:3.5.6-3.lvn6 < 6:3.5.6-3, thus the 
problem. Either the Conflicts needs to be fixed, or the epoch of 
kdemultimedia-extras-nonfree needs to be bumped to 6 to match the other

Thanks Kevin, fixing asap.

Looks like Michael caught it before I got to it, thanks.

* Wed Mar  7 2007 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt[AT]users.sf.net> 6:3.5.6-5
- fix the fatal "Conflicts" with kdemultimedia-extras-nonfree, which
  breaks upgrades - the package does not have Epoch 6

Yeah, everything is OK now. Thanks!
(and you're right, no kittens were harmed :) )
