It is a hidden option:

The RPMs are here:


You need to download a KDE RPM of the new version for each RPM of the old 
version that you have installed.  If you can not find a new one, you will need 
to uninstall the old one before you proceed with the upgrade.

You can get a list of most of these with:

	rpm -qa |grep kde

Don't forget that you may need to upgrade aRts and Qt.

The only trick to this is that you MUST upgrade all of the KDE RPMs at the same 
time.  You can NOT upgrade them one at a time due to the fact that they are 
mutually dependent.

It is unlikely that there will be a lot of other dependencies with a minor 
version upgrade.
