Go down the dependency chain until you hit the actual culprit. If
mythtv-suite is bombing on mythbrowser, try apt-get install mythbrowser,
and it'll tell you what its bombing on. Rinse and repeat.

Only if you wanted to use KDE for your desktop environment. I've seen
apt-get want to do that as well... There are some goofy things that
happen w/the kde-redhat repo enabled (though its awesome to run an
updated KDE on our RHL7.3 dev stations at work!).

And I just had a thought. KDE getting removed could be your problem.
mythbrowser is Konqueror-based, and may depend on something that got
removed. Ack.
