Description chris desjardins 2007-08-07 18:31:35 UTC
Description of problem:
When I deselect the GNOME desktop on the DVD and instead select KDE, my 
installation is still cluttered with default GNOME apps (i.e. totem, 
rhythmbox, sound juicer, evolution, etc.).  This apps have perfectly good KDE 
counterparts and should be deselected when GNOME is deselected.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Deselect GNOME and GNOME apps will still be present.  You'll need to spend an 
additional 2-3 more minutes going through sub-categories to deselect all GNOME 
I would expect Firefox and GIMP to be default on all desktop installations but 
why would I need Evolution if Kontact is present?  Why would I need Totem with 
Kaffeine present?  This adds additional dependencies and clutters my system.

I'm not sure of a good way to handle this without creating a spin of the release
without those packages present.  Perhaps using the KDE Live image is a solution?
