	No, my bad -- very much not the same. I tried installing back 
several, not including NM; got the error; figured out by trial and error 
which one was requiring NM; dropped that; installed the others; went 
back, got more, and again managed to re-install everything except what 
turned out to be the PackageKit complex and krb5-auth-dialog.

	OK, I'll wait. "yum install gnome-packagekit krb5-auth-dialog" 
will now get everything I haven't been able to add back.
