3.About everything on the computer become a dependency that neads to be removed.
  
Actual results:
I was sitting there with a system with no KDE no pirut and no yum so what was I 
suposed to do? fresh install.


Expected results:
Remove the packages I instaled earlier withour removing the rest of my system.


Additional info:

Comment 1 Seth Vidal 2007-07-05 12:21:14 UTC
So if you did a fresh install you don't have your /var/log/yum.log from the system?
If you do - please attach it.


Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2007-07-05 12:25:25 UTC
If you find the yum.log you'll find that pcre was not installed when you ran
that command. It was already installed so yum happily ignored it and moved
along. Then When you asked yum to remove pcre that pulled out 'grep' as grep
depends on pcre - and LOTS of things depend on grep.
