Uninstalling KDE in RH 9.


How would one go about uninstalling KDE? The Add/Remove Applications doesn't have a checkbox that would allow me to uninstall it. tia

but you do see it at the top of the package list right? well anyways you should .. it should be within the top 3 of the list, and you just click details and remove all the checkmarks, if you wanna do it that way.

yeah I would do that but it still leaves kdebase. hell maybe it would be easier if not quicker to reinstall. I want to completely remove kde so that I can install kde from about 20 rpms from kde.org. Anyone?

Hi!

I have the same problem, it seems impossible to uninstall the KDE base through the add/remove...

I'm afraid to remove each kde package individually since this could result in a bad uninstallation. Or maybe there's a way to list all these packages to make sure we'll uninstall everything through rpm -e ....
Any idea?

Thanks for your help
