up2date requires gnome componets to be installed. This makes installing it
confusing for users who have selected a KDE workstation install. Prehaps it
would be good to install some of the underlying GNOME libraries with the
KDE install since we have a few things that are "Red Hat" tools that
require things from GNOME (up2date and rp3 for instance)?
Some of them are; gnome-libs is installed with X.
the new up2date service provided with Red Hat Network and Red Hat Linux 7 can
operate with or without GNOME/X.
