I'm trying to follow the posted instructions for installing kde4 and I am 
getting an error in adept that says installation will break something, but no 
further details.  Using apt-get install doesn't revail any more info to me.

The problem seems to be in installing kdebase-runtime.

Here's the output of sudo apt-get install kdebase-runtime
