Re: XFCE depends on GNOME, why?

It is so very counterproductive because my idea was to setup a small,efficient system specifically without GNOME or KDE's overhead.
This is an old computer, with a Celeron processor

Take a look at this, this is the result of sudo groupinstall XFCE:

Check the XFCE web site. Gnome is an optional dependency. You can build your own version from the sources without Gnome. I've done it before, they have a program that does the build for you, so it's easy.
