Removing Gnome completely off FC3

Good day,

Is it possible to remove every single component of Gnome from Fedora Core 3 and only have KDE?

If so, please tell me how.

Yes, but "every single component" is a very large set, an it may include applications you will want to use. (Note that GNOME and KDE share several components, and that both can, to a large extent, run applications written for the other desktop. Provided you have both X libraries installed.)

Try a yum remove gnome-core to get a list of everything that you'll remove that depends on GNOME. (I'd recommend a complete review of that list before proceeding.)

To remove only specified things, try the rpm --nodeps -e <pachage name> command.

Just curious , but why do you want to do this?
