I run MDK 10.0 now. But previously ran 9.2 on a "FX Box" and the
updating of Thac's 9.2 RPM's gave way to his efforts to stay with the
current 10.0 release.

I have done this and sometimes it worked. I suffered no major problems
with my system. Thac's statement was obvious..."Dependencies are all
different in 10.0 vs 9.2". But I don't see that it will create any
issues on your system. The cool thing about URPMI is if it fits it will
install. If it don't, it wont!
