Description of problem:
I wanted to remove KDE; I don't use it or even like it anymore. So I
did a "yum remove qt" and waited for it to percolate. Gnome was
replaced by TWM.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum remove qt
2. Ensure that no Gnome packages are mentioned, and confirm.
3. Watch how TWM is now the system default.
Actual Results: Removing these QT libs should have removed everything
KDE related, and anything using the QT libraries, and it did. It also
mangled gnome-session and gnome-media in such a way as to need to be
installed a second time....it was never removed. Once installed a
second time, it worked again.
Expected Results: Removing KDE (or conversely Gnome) should be just
that- removing one or the other. Are there components still confused
after all these years?
arts requires libqt-mt.so
which is provided by qt
gstreamer-plugins requires arts
much of gnome needs the gstreamer plugins - ex: libgstinterfaces-0.8.so.0
That's what removes gnome when you remove qt.
try yum remove kde\*
and see if that's better.
