Maybe you and I have a different concept of 'Servers'. But I tend to
install @core only and then remove items whenever I can for a server.

If it is a bad day I'll install X b/c something requires it but for
servers I try to avoid anything beside the barest minimal I can have.

yum doesn't allow users to install pkgs, only root.

I just found PackageKit on a server that's never been anything but. It was installed fith FC-2, which IIRC is pre-PackageKit. Does this mean it was pulled in by something else that no longer requires it?


Did you 'yum update' the box from fc-2 to whatever it is now? or how did you get there?
