Summary and Info:

I just got this:

  resolving dependencies...
  looking for conflicting packages...
  error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
  error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
  :: akonadi-qt4 and akonadi are in conflict

..which is great, but it never tells me which one is the new package (akonadi-qt4), and which is the one I have (akonadi).

Is it the same message when both are installed?
This task depends upon
