    From what I 've googled, KDE 4.2 is already available in Mandriva. Just do a system update and KDE will be updated as well.
    The update tool should be somewhere in the control center.
    Or in Konsole type:
    Code:
    sudo urpmi.update -a
    sudo urpmi --auto-select
    These 2 commands will update everything. You must be connected to the Internet ofcourse.

    I googled a bit and this is the most promising link I found.(I did not try it, I don't use RHEL or CentOS at home)
    If it is a production/server or critical system, you 'd better not update to KDE 4.2. The KDE community is doing a great job, but there are still many open bugs and Red Hat may not support you if you have issues with 4.2.
    Better test it in a Virtual Machine first, to see if it works OK.
    Fedora 10 has KDE 4 by default
