I'm not a CentOS authority, but one of the big differences you're looking
at is hal. With kde 4.5 and previous, kde used hal. With 4.6+, it uses
Since late 4.5 (4.5.4 or 4.5.5) was really the first time I considered
kde4 full-release worthy -- what SHOULD have been 4.0 (IMO previous
versions were alpha quality thru 4.2, beta 4.3, rc 4.4), that's a very
reasonable version to install for still hal-based systems.
Actually, 4.6 had some unfortunate regressions early on, tho by 4.6.5
they were generally fixed and/or had workarounds (one, I think triggered
only if you have a panel configured for the top or left sides, still
exists in 4.7, but there's known workarounds). 4.6 was in many ways a
stability regression from 4.5, tho by 4.6.5 it was acceptable. But for
systems still using hal, 4.5 is definitely a far easier and better choice.
