You shouldn't blindly accept everything from APT.
Typically all these problems will go away once the component "base" is released: that is all the packages that you can find in a SuSE DVD.

Suggestion :

Once you have enouph download speed to download the rpm packages, have you considered of changing distro to debian , slackware or any other distros with automated packaging facilities? I used to run Suse 9.0 and when I changed to Debian .... Oh God! You don't have to worry about dependencies anymore! Suse is not so convinient for home use because once you want to install your own packages even if they are compatible with the rest of the "common" part of Suse (common to all distros I mean) maybe is not compatible with the Suse "extra" facilities.
A good example is that if you install the newest version of kde (home users usually want that) you have to remove Suse help due to incompatibility problems. Suse is really stable for office use (once everything is tested) but the options you really have are the packages inside the distros cd (or dvd). Debian can be stable as well by using the stable packages so I don't really get the point of using Suse (if you have enouph bandwidth to support Debian).

Anyway , that was just a suggestion and I didn't want to "spill oil in the fire" (this extra line here was added because people get obsessed with this stuff)....

Bye
