Remove KDE


I really like the dropline, but if I'm going to use it exclusively I'd like to get rid of KDE which is taking up a lot of space. Is this a good idea and if so how can it be done?

Check '/var/log/packages', everything you need to make such a decision is there, for example:

Code:
PACKAGE NAME:     kdebase-3.5.4-i486-7
COMPRESSED PACKAGE SIZE:     28705 K
UNCOMPRESSED PACKAGE SIZE:     58060 K
PACKAGE LOCATION: /var/log/mount/slackware/kde/kdebase-3.5.4-i486-7.tgz
PACKAGE DESCRIPTION:
kdebase: kdebase (KDE base package)
kdebase:
kdebase: Core applications for the K Desktop Environment.

You should be able to run pkgtool as root in a terminal window and select the Remove option. Select all the KDE packages. I would leave kdelibs installed so you can still run the occasional KDE program under Dropline.

A simple command you could use (as root) is:

removepkg /var/log/packages/kde*
