I have red hat 8 on my computer right now but I am finding that Gnome really slows down my already slow machine so I am thinking about replacing it with Fluxbox. My question is how do I uninstall gnome? Or do I just install Fluxbox on top of it.
welll i have a question.. why do you want to uninstall gnome in the first place??? it only runs when you use it.. like an application.. so if you run fluxbox it wont be slowing you down with the gnome files... [right guys? lol corret me if im wrong [im wrong in the spelling ] ] but you can have all the WMs installed.. not only one.. so go ahead and install fluxbox and keep gnome.. [unless its a disk space issue..]
lol ... :-p i have only a small 80 gig drive but its like got so much empty space. what do you guys DO with your gigabytes??! eat theM!?!? mean ... its not like the days where every1 had a 2 gig drive.. nowadays like the smallest is like 20 or something and like 40s are super cheap and 80s are dirt cheap and 160s are affordable... and still people are worrying about DISK SPACE??! lol..
