Sweet! *Sizzle*

Don't forget the camera! You are going to run into problems like that if you install 1 package at a time. I've never used the --auto-select thing, I just:
urpmi packagename (example: urpmi mplayer) and then it goes and fetches the package(s) for me, installs em, and I'm running. With your desktop environments there is quite a bit involved, so you will have quite a few packages that "intermingle" with each other. Don't leave 1 out. You will have quite the packages to update, but once it's done you'll have a new X server, and almost a whole new system.



Did you hear about that night club that burned down? I saw some video of that, nothing like a computer fire...

Cool

Yes. You will definitely want to. Linux runs a system of sharing everything. The main reason you'll ever run into "Dependency Hell" is because of this. It's actually a good thing, saves time, easier to produce apps, and so on. lib's are a very important part of any program.

So yes, you'll want the libs.

Sorry for the humor on your computer burning, I was in a funny mood yesterday

Cool

question since I have the exact same problem (see 'weird elongated login gui'): to do this urpmi thing is all I do is in the command prompt type 'urpmi gnome' and hit enter and sit back and let it run?

just in case I'm missing something, here's my output from urpmi gnome, do I have to go through, one at a time, and install these packages, there seems to be a farkload and to do each one seperately will take a long time, any sort of automation?

The following packages contain gnome: gnome-kerberos gnome-vfs-extras gnome-pilot-conduits libcapplet1-devel libgnomeui2_0 gnome-spell libgnomemm-1.2_9-devel libgnome-db0-devel gnome-media gnomeicu libgnomeprint2.0 gnome-session libgnome-desktop-2_2-devel libgail-gnome0-devel libgnomeprint gnome-iconedit libgnome-pilot1-devel gnome-telnet gnomemeeting gnome-vfs2 gnome-tiles libgnomeui2_0-devel everybuddy libgail-gnome gnome-panel libgdk-pixbuf-gnomecanvas1 gnome-pim gnome-terminal libgnome-db0 gnome-pim-conduits libgnomeprint2-2_0-devel libgnomeprint2.0_0 icewm-gnome pygnome-libglade libgnomeprint2.0_0-devel galaxy-gnome gnome-audio libgnomeprintui2.0_0-devel libgnomeui2 ruby-gtk libgsf-1_1 gnome-control-center libgnome-desktop-2_2 pygnome gtk+licq gnome-network pygnome-devel gnome-libs R-base libpanel-applet-2_0-devel gnome-games gnome-mime-data openssh-askpass-gnome libgnome2_0-devel libgnomeprintui2-2_0 gnome-vfs gnome-audio-extra libgail-gnome0 libgnome-pilot1 gnome-applets gnome-system-monitor libgnomemm-1.2_9 gnome-toaster gnome-utils libunicode0 WindowMaker xine-gnomevfs libgnome-window-settings1-devel gtk+licq-nognome libgnome32-devel libgnomeprint2-2_0 libgnomeprintui2-2_0-devel gnome-print gnucash libgnome-vfs2_0-devel gnome-db libgnome-desktop-2_0 perl-GTK-Gnome libgnome-vfs0-devel gnome2 sawfish gnome-themes libglade-gnome-db0 gnome-icon-theme libgnomeprintui2.0_0 libgnome32 libgnucash0 gstreamer-gnomevfs libgnome-window-settings1 gnome-chess libgnome2_0 libgnome2 libgail-gnome-devel libunicode0-devel rep-gtk-gnome libgnomecanvas2_0-devel gnome-user-docs libgnome-vfs2_0 gnome-linuxconf libgtop2.0_0 pygnome-capplet libgdkcardimage0-devel libglade-gnome0 libgnomeprint15-devel gnome-desktop libgnome-desktop-2_0-devel libgnome-vfs0 libole20 libgnomeprint15 libgnomecanvas2_0 gnome-common gnome-pilot

I was just going to copy and paste this into a terminal, but I think screenshots do more justice, so I'll boot back into my server distro and host em up... I think I should get a cookie for this!

Cool
