Minimalist Installs (was Checkbox for "Install Everything")

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


For the record... Starting off with some minimum default installation, and then adding stuff later, doesn't necessarily work all that well either.

I did an F7 Test 4 installation taking JUST the default packages that the installer presented to me, including Gnome but no KDE.

Now, whenever I do a new installation I always install both Gnome and KDE, but this time I resisted the temptation.

Then, after I got it all up and running, I logged on as root and tried "yum groupinstall "KDE (K Desktop Environment)"". Result was:

Transaction Check Error:
file /usr/share/config/kdm conflicts between attempted installs of kde-settings-kdm-3.5-23.fc7 and kdebase-3.5.6-10.fc7

Tried using "Add / Remove Programs" to install KDE and got pretty much the same thing.

Amazingly enough I couldn't find anything about that in the bugzilla database, so I reported it as bug 240717.

Have any of you run across that, and what did you do about it?

        WHY these installations always default to Gnome
        and not KDE...>
