Installing gnome on Fedora Core 2
 
Hello I'm running KDE 3.2 on Fedora Core 2.

Gnome isn't installed on my system. I would like install it and switch to Gnome. I go in Package Management (Add/Remove Applications) and check Gnome from the list. Then I click the Update button and it tells me: "The following packages could not be found on your system. Installation cannot continue until they are installed. xorg-x11-libs". However, when I go in KPackage and search for "xorg", I find xorg-x11-libs in the installed packages. I tried yum update xorg-x11-libs and it tells me already up to date.

Any idea?

Thanks,
David

You should be able to install it from the CD.Add the CD to the sources.

Is yum not a valid option? I would have thought that simply doing
Code:

$ yum install gnome
would work, would it not?

Or, boot from the FC2 #1 CD and press enter as if it is a new installation, and then it gives you an option of either performing a new installation or upgrading a currently installed system. Maybe you can add gnome from there?

How do you add the CD to the sources?

I tried "yum install gnome" but it tells me: cannot find a package matching gnome

I'm afraid about booting from the CD to upgrade the current system to try adding gnome. I had so much trouble figuring out how to set up Samba so that my Linux box acts as a domain controler and also setting up my ftp. Now, I wouldn't want to loose anything. I thought there may be a way to install gnome easily. As usual, with Linux, nothing is ever easy...
