there is a way to install KDE wihtou all crap ?

i try to figure out how to install KDE without all the crap...some apps like KMAIL, KNOD, look like to be part of one big package and cant be uninstaled individually to pick
what i want to remove or not...


i was using Gnome before but why use gnome if you use KDE software like K3B or kopete and have to install lot of KDE lib to use them...




thx

Nope, KDE is all about options, but not that one unfortunately.

Just curious but why are you wanting to uninstall all the KDE apps and just
have a bare kde, just low on disk space?

Maybe you can install KDE, then do a yum remove on "kdepim"
since kdepim holds kmail, kabc, and so on (the PIM apps are in that)

Why not try Xfce then (without the Gnome stuff) and just install the KDE and Gnome apps you use? It still isnt perfect, but is much better.

To do this you would have to totally remove Gnome then install Xfce under text mode.

Personally, I have KDE, Gnome, Xfce, Fluxbox, E17, LookingGlass and some others installed. The days of PII 3.2GB 64MB RAM are long over

kde-core --- This will install the core -- the bare-minimum required-- of KDE. That is, kdebase, kdelibs, arts and fontconfig.
kde-core would give you a minimum of packages.

i think this is not really a KDE problem more of a RPM problem, personally i prefer gnome.. but it too has its strange RPM dep issues like if i dont want to use evolution or anything having to do with evolution why do i have to uninstall things that are not evolution... or why cant i uninstall the stupid palm sync junk that i will never use.. or printer stuff...

over the years i have come to terms with it, and if RPM tells me it has to remove something i dont want it to just to remove something i do want it to then i just cancel the removal and live with the unwanted junk.. *sigh*

I know what you are saying but no that's not the case here, this isn't an RPM thing but a KDE thing. It's just the way KDE is packaged, for example if you want to have the mixer applet then you also have to have Noatun, KsCD, Kaboodle, JuK, KAudioCreator, KMid and probably a few more worthless "K" apps that I forgot. On the Gnome side you have the same deal in some places but it's always much lighter and at least they're not all "G" apps.

This has been brought up many times and they're well aware of how annoyed some are by this

BTW there's always

rpm -e --nodeps <something>

You should see the crap I had to install just for ksnapshot on my old debian xfce install. I wont make that mistake again, I will just use something else.

Serves you right for wanting ksnapshot in the first place.
