    According to [url=][/url] it looks like you can easily go to the repo folder and delete the kde file once KDE 4.4 is installed, so the system doesnt uprade to KDe 4.5 unstable:

    Login as root:

    Go to the repo directory:
    [code]cd /etc/yum.repos.d/[/code]

    Delete Repo:
    [code]rm kde.repo[/code]
