    Since I use this for work, I don't want the DE to get unstable with updates, but want to do other updates like security updates.

    Should I disable the KDE Factory Desktop repos? How can I work this so everything updates without taking my KDE into 4.4.1 beta? I ask because I'm not sure yet what comes down through OSS, NON OSS, and Updates repos....or, if I can only do those. I'm just trying to make it dummy proof..I don't tend to break things in linux, but you know .... thanks
    Cheers, Big Ears!

    Not related to your question:
    Since, you have configured the Factory version of KDE, you will never need to use the KDE Backports.
