kde package dependency problem?

$ sudo system-switch-displaymanager kdm
ERROR: KDM is not installed on your machine! to install KDM, please type
yum install kdebase-workspace
$ sudo yum install kdebase-workspace
Loaded plugins: auto-update-debuginfo, fastestmirror, presto, refresh-packagekit

Setting up Install Process
Package kdebase-workspace-4.7.3-12.fc16.i686 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
system-switch-displaymanager tells me to install kdebase-workspace, but kdebase-workspace doesn't include kdm! kdm is a separate package.

Re: kde package dependency problem?

Not sure why it said that, but do

yum install kdm

kdm is in its own package. It may pull in other packages it needs, but start there.

Re: kde package dependency problem?

Yes I did that. I meant to say that but I wanted to try it first so I posted my message so that I wouldn't lose it, but I forgot to come back and say that I installed kdm and it worked. But someone should fix that message.
