An MD5 digest is a checksum file. When you download a file, there is a chance that due to an error that your copy will not be identical to the servers copy. The MD5 checksum will be different even if just one bit of the file is wrong.

This is what has happened - you downloaded a file, but it contains an error which was picked up by the MD5 check, and the installation was halted immediately. You should try to download the file ' kdelibs-devel-3.2.0-0.1.i386.rpm' again.
