Can you start out by telling us exactly what you saw when you clicked on 
it in KDE, and exactly what you saw when you tried to "rpm -U MySQL..", 
and all that?

I see this day after day, people will post here without any real 
information, which makes it more difficult for us to efficiently answer 
your questions.

I don't think that using an "Easy RPM Manager" will help you.  I think 
it's a better idea to have a good understanding of how this all works, 
regardless of which tool you use.
