Ilya please, confirme if u are talking about or other..

the names "libexiv2-9" and "libexiv2-10" dont reflect any version, in
future i recomend for al parse versions..  so the i asume u upgrade
from exiv2 0.9 to 0.10 so..

the packages break due u'r old version has soname "" in u
/usr/lib (o whathever puach suse puts), and new version changed or
renamed do.. the new version its ,  i will explain a
posible solution and a reason of breaks

1)Posible solve:  ln newrealfile -> oldnamefile  i explaint that: in
debian libexiv2-9 put file in /usr/lib/ so when upgrade
breaks trinity desktop, so link that file to hope file
/usr/lib/ as : ln -s /usr/lib/

2) whiy changes: maybe a new api change, if the way of conver png
files by library may change, then developers prevent and reflects
changes for dependences as soname changes..

When you change the way a library works there is no way to ensure that
developments take into proyects changes, with the soname ensures that
developments need to be switched to the new implementation by breaking
the dependency on .. Triniti kde here now hav breaks with the old
library and now must be compiled against the new, compelling use (if
required) the new way of functioning that change in Exiv2
