64 bit os12.2: nothing provides hal needed by trinity-desktop-

After hours and hours and hours since about 24 hours ago of futile attempts 
to get 12.1/KDE 4.9.5 upgraded to 12.2/4.10.5, including finally a fresh 
installation of 12.2, I finally just removed all traces of KDE4 and tried 
'zypper -v in trinity-desktop', only to be stopped by $SUBJECT. :~(

Zypper se -s hal produces nada except as irrelevant substring. Zypper se -s 
trinity lists 1127 packages. Apparently hal needs more appropriate mention on 

Why 12.2 and not something newer?:

Also in 12.3 and 13.1 there's this:

Why not KDE 4.11?:

I guess it's back to KDE3. No missing deps installing it. It even runs. :-p
