Removing unwanted KDE packages
I am a Slackware 12.1 user. As you know the KDE packages come in bundled such as kdenetwork, kdebase, kdepim etc. For instance kdenetwork includes kget, kopete, kdict. Let us assume that I want to uninstall kdict. Is it possible to do so without removing the whole kdenetwork bundle but just that specific package?
Thank you in advance...
A possible way to do it : Create a package kdenetwork-kdict-3.5.9-i586.tgz
e.g. use 'kdenetwork-kdict-3.5.9-4mde2008.1.i586.rpm' from
Convert to ".tgz" with command 'rpm2tgz kdenetwork-kdict....rpm'
Then check the result and see, that there are small differencies e.g.
If you think it's OK, then install the package and remove it again.
And gone is kdict.
(If something goes wrong, kdenetwork can easily be reinstalled )
Or use it as a "draft" to build a package from your own files with
# 'makepkg' and then : # 'installpkg' and # 'removepkg'
