Removing unwanted KDE packages


Dear Users,

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...

Ekin

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
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i586.rpm.html

Convert to ".tgz" with command 'rpm2tgz kdenetwork-kdict....rpm'
Then check the result and see, that there are small differencies e.g.
in /usr/share/doc

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'
