Looks like you have a mix of i386 and x86_64 packages, or something like that.
Did you do a clean F-7 install, or an upgrade from FC-6 ?

Could you install the 'yum-utils' package and run the following command ? :

package-cleanup --problems
Comment 2 Andreas Färber 2007-06-11 15:21:50 EDT
I did a clean net install (boot.iso) of F7 on a Pentium III, so if some x86_64 packages got installed it's still 
a bug. Mirror used was ftp.stw-bonn.de I believe.
There was an (i386) FC4 installation on the machine but it was repartitioned and formatted.
Comment 3 Andreas Färber 2007-06-11 15:30:17 EDT
Similar problems also surfaced for Skencil (0.6.17-13.fc7):
- according to /usr/bin/skencial it did not find tk84.so: the tk package was not installed as a dependency
- manually installing tk leads to the next error, Python complaining about python-imaging
- if I manually install python-imaging and surrounding packages then I get a memory access error 
Let me know if I should file a separate bug on that.
Comment 4 Andreas Färber 2007-06-11 15:37:56 EDT
$ package-cleanup --problems
Setting up yum
Reading local RPM database
Processing all local requires
Missing dependencies:
Package gnochm requires python-chm >= 0.8.4
Package pstoedit requires libEMF.so.1
Package pstoedit requires libMagick++.so.10
Package pstoedit requires libplotter.so.2
Package inkscape requires perl(Image::Magick)
Package inkscape requires perl(XML::XQL)
Package inkscape requires perl(XML::XQL::DOM)
Package xfig requires transfig >= 1:3.2.5

These packages and some others were installed graphically in Gnome using Package
Manager ("Paket-Manager"), no crashes or errors.
Comment 5 Denis Leroy 2007-06-11 17:20:21 EDT
We've had similar reports of yum installations leading to broken deps, something
that's normally technically not possible. 2 questions :

1. did you install inkscape with a manual yum command ?

2. from what F-7 media did you install from ? (DVD, single-CD spin, live CD,
network install)
Comment 6 Andreas Färber 2007-06-11 18:22:46 EDT
See comments #3 and #5!
Comment 7 Andreas Färber 2007-06-11 18:24:14 EDT
sry, #2 and #4 obviously: no manual yum
Comment 8 Denis Leroy 2007-06-13 11:57:19 EDT
So you installed inkscape with the 'add/remove software' menu entry ? (aka pirut).

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 242748 ***
Comment 9 Andreas Färber 2007-06-14 03:10:02 EDT
Yes! (The window title and about dialog both said Paket-Manager.)
