apt-get --fix-broken = OMGWTFBBQ ?!
Could someone explain this to me?

I wanted to install Skype, but when I downloaded it, I was told I had a missing dependency (libQtDBus.so.4),
so, I tried to apt-get it, and apt told me there was a problem, and I should run
apt-get --fix-broken install
Which then told me it wanted to remove nearly 200 packages from my system, including the kernel, and many programs that I use reguarly, and can't believe are "broken"....
Of course, I aborted that action...
I would like to get Skype installed, but, at the same time, I'm a little concerned over apt telling me that some 200 packages need to be removed from my system.

This is on Linguas OS (based on PCFluxboxOS->PCLinuxOS->Mandriva).
Output from the terminal session with apt are under the cut...
