Hmm, no idea. Would be probably fine if you "rpm -Uvh" the package and
it does not complain about missing dependencies, but then again who
knows, it might make the whole computer dissapear in a puff of smoke....

If you try that make sure you also download the -devel and -doc packages
and upgrade what you have installed all at once (all installed packages
in the same rpm invocation). To see what you have installed do "rpm -q
-a | grep libxcb".
