I had to install Ubuntu 10.10 desktop (because ubuntu server fails with installer on my hardware), and now I have to remove anything related to X and GNOME.
I managed to remove xorg, but now I'm trying to remove GNOME.
sudo apt-get —purge remove gnome*
seems to do the job, but it says that a lot of gnome-related packages are going to be removed, and then a lot of packages (related with KDE and QT, as it looks like) are going to be installed.
Why can't I just remove packages without installing anything else? Or how can I do that?
I just need to remove all GUI software, leaving only text-mode system.
