When I upgraded to 2.2 I stumbled over the same uneasy feeling.  In the past I
had pain stakingly removed all KDE packages prior to installing and yet I still
had to force without dependencies.  This one I was told to "Just do it" and not
worry about removing packages first.  I did have to get one dependency if I
remember correctly; a couple SSL packages?  Anyway...

rpm -Uvh --force --nodeps *.rpm

It's dirty work but in my case it worked.  I did remove my existing .kde and
Desktop directories; not sure I needed to or not but another habit.
