[lug] installing kde

At least part of the problem is that this is released against Roswell (RH 7.2 Beta).  Below I've tried to address each broken dependency you listed:

libfam.so.0: mine comes from fam-2.6.4-9 from the RedHat 7.1 release.

kdemultimedia: try ftp://ftp.us.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/2.2/RedHat/7.x/i386/kdemultimedia-2.2-3.i386.rpm -- they probably (erroneously) assumed you already had 2.2 and forgot to include the RPM in the 2.2.1 tree.

libartsgui.so.0: part of kdemultimedia (link above)

libvorbis: libvorbis-1.0rc2-1 (RH 7.1)

libcrypto.so.2: openssl-0.9.6b-4 (RH 7.1)

libssl.so.2: same as above

kdesupport: this is depricated and is no longer necessary (AFAIK), just --force it.

librpm*: I ended up grabbing SRPMS from the roswell tree (RH 7.2 beta) and rebuilding.  A royal pain - you might consider --force.

python2: I just omitted the dependent RPM, kdebindings-python, from the rpm command line (don't need it).  You could probably explore grabbing roswell SRPMS for python2, if you've got the patience.

Disclaimer: I can't promise that using --force won't break something, but it worked for me. YMMV.

Good luck.
