smart

I just installed smart smart-gui, and started it up and selected fix all packages, and it seems to want to remove ALL things KDE???
This is a FC5 - FC6 upgrade, and I kind of expected to see a few remnant FC5 packages that it might want to get rid of, but all of KDE (and then some) all FC6 pkgs, that just doesn't sound right.

(I think that should cover the 10 character minimum).

Have you checked using synaptic to see if you have any broken packages

Actually, I checked with smart (check all packages) and it found 2 or 3 "broken/can't coexist" packages. I don't recall what off hand, but nothing to do with KDE. No KDE packages show up as broken. It just want's to remove them.
At least that's what I gather from it. I click on fix all problems, and it turns up all kde packages with a red x on each package (and each dependency) as well as many packages that depend on KDE.
This is the first time I've tried smart since late in my FC3 install (I think). So, maybe I'm reading it wrong.
I'll research a bit more

I think it's because in FC 6 it defaults to GNOME and you have to add KDE through the installer choices. Try upgrading to core 6 via a CD/DVD and see what happens.

This is a FC5 to FC6 upgrade through CDs. Maybe I should try smart on my other partition with a fresh (minimal) install and see if it doesn't like KDE.

@ Leigh. FYI, I had planned on giving Gnome a shot when I installed FC6, but it crashed, and crashed and crashed again just during the first yum update.
After 3 crashes I decided to install KDE and it crashed again a couple of times while installing KDE. Haven't had another problem after starting KDE. (Well, non to speak of).
I'll give Gnome another shot soon. I need the target practice (just kidding). I will try again. Maybe with 7.
