removing kde in debian
I think im missing something here.
im using dedian sarge on a laptop thats not to powerful, i installed kde to see what its like, it slows my machine wayyyyyy down. so i want it gone so i can clear some space and try more things.
ive tried "apt-get remove kde" wich removes 400kb of something but kde and all its bajillion packages are still there.
i then tried to use synaptic to remove every file i could find that had something to do with kde, all seemed fine, i even told it to remove kdm which i still want to use but i figured i could just reinstall it.
and after it went through the whole process it killed X, ok so when i typed "startx" to get back to fluxbox, it started kde.
am i doing it wrong here? anyhelp would be great.
