Install rpm via yast
I only ask because since upgrading KDE to 3.5.2 clicking on 'Install this with Yast' in konqueror doesn't work anymore.

That's strange that Yast2 won't install rpms via Konqueror. Personally, I always prefer to install rpm's via the command line, if I can, because I have so much control over what's going on and I can see if there are any errors or missing packages. If you want to install an rpm in this way you can simply type in your command line emulator (Konsole):
rpm -i packagename.rpm
It could also be that Yast2 would not install the rpm because of a problem and if you attempt to install the package via command line, you will see what the problem was. Otherwise, you could try adding the directory that contains the package as a Yast source and then searching for that package in Yast2.
Someone else might have a better idea on that last part, though. I'm still learning to navigate Yast2 myself.
