Gil, what I do in such a situation is from my download folder, right click on
the rpm and select Open with -- Kpackage. Then you can try install. If it
gives any grief you can always uninstall the existing rpm and then install
the new one.

It's a lot quicker than fooling around with trying to make YOU look at your
download file.
