Re: yum groupremove removes to much!!

gdm.. oke that could be possible..
but still.. i find it strange that everything of KDE is alos being removed when you only enter this command:
"yum groupremove "GNOME Desktop Environment""

that`s just not what i would expect to happen..

Development tools depend on their corresponding packages. And you
probably removed gdm or something KDE depended on, without the KDE
equivalent in place. Sounds normal, unless you have a specific example
of a dependency that doesn't make sense.

Yes, but did you reinstall "KDE (K Desktop Environment)"  and "GNOME
Software Development" ? If not that is not a fair comparison.
