 I am referring to kdeaddons - 3.5.6-4.fc7 I installed it this morning and it
pulled in kdemultimedia-extras as a dependency. I was wanting to have the
google search box in konqueror as I use konqueror as my web browser. and the
kdemultimedia-extras package it pulled it is 3.5.6-7. These came straight out
of yum as i did a yum install kdeaddons.

Ah, I see. Sub-package-bloat-confusion. kdeaddons.spec BuildRequires
kdemultimedia-devel, which due to the sub-package split leads to
"noatun" related files in kdeaddons depending on noatun libraries in
kdemultimedia-extras.
