Apt doesn't like KDE


I recently updated to KDE 3.4 using the RPMs on kde.org
It all went well, and it's working but apt-get and Synaptic want it removed lol
I wanna be able to update my packages without removing KDE, or any of it's parts. Can someone help me?
Code:
[root@DaBlade downloads]# apt-get upgrade
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  kdepim: Depends: libakregatorprivate.so but it is not installable
          Depends: libkmailprivate.so but it is not installable
          Depends: libknodecommon.so but it is not installable
  kdepim-devel: Depends: kdepim (= 6:3.3.1-1.FC3.1) but 6:3.4.0-0.fc3.0 is installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
[root@DaBlade downloads]# apt-get upgrade -f
Reading Package Lists... Done

The following packages will be upgraded
  aterm gaim gaim-encryption gaim-festival gaim-meanwhile kaffeine ksmarttray
  lftp meanwhile p7zip p7zip-plugins perl-Convert-UUlib smart smart-gui
  smart-update trackballs
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  kdeaddons kdeaddons-atlantikdesigner kdeaddons-xmms kdepim kdepim-devel
  kdesdk kdesdk-devel kdevelop kdewebdev kdewebdev-devel
16 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 10 removed and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 14.9MB of archives.
After unpacking 130MB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] n
Abort.
Here's a screenshot of Synaptic
(And No, I don't wanna use yum or up2date...)

I have found from experience that when your system tells you to try something, to follow up on it.


"You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these"

Go ahead and try that first. Type:

apt-get -f install

in a terminal and see if it fixes things.

If the files aren't used for the standard setup of KDE (basically meaning: if they are removed and your system works fine without them) then let it remove them and then after apt-get -f install is done you can add them back in. As long as you don't purge the settings it should be alright and they should be back to normal upon reinstall.

I have FC3 and have done the upgrades via rpms from the redhat site. I have not had problems with apt nor synaptic trying to remove KDE 3.4.
