Upgrading a 6.1 KDE workstation install w/o gnome to 6.2 results in gnome
being installed and set as default desktop.

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2000-04-11 16:13:59 UTC
Did you install 6.1 using the 'KDE Workstation' option in the installer?

Comment 2 Anonymous 2000-04-12 18:08:59 UTC
yes.  Clean 6.1 install w/KDE workstation option selected.

Comment 3 Jay Turner 2000-04-13 15:08:59 UTC
Part of the problem is actually a bug with 6.1 in that the "KDE Workstation"
option actually installed GNOME as well as KDE.  So, the 6.2 upgrade routine is
seeing the fact that GNOME is installed and upgrading the GNOME components.  I
am forwarding this to a developer to take a look at why the upgrade changes the
default window manager.

Comment 4 Preston Brown 2000-05-24 19:34:59 UTC
this bug was fixed for 6.2 and later, i.e. it will not happen when upgrading a
6.2 box to something later.
