uninstalling kde without removing k-apps...
 
Greetings all!

I've started tinkering around with fluxbox, WindowMaker, blackbox and hackedbox and I'm really noticing how much faster and smoother my laptop runs versus running kde.
The question I have is this: Can I uninstall kde the window manager without uninstalling all of the 'k' related apps?
I really don't like using it anymore as I am finding, like I've read in a lot of different places, that kde really does use a lot of system resources.

kde was a great place to start for me when I migrated from windows, but I find I'm just not interested anymore.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks!

BTW, my votes are leaning toward fluxbox and WindowMaker!!

Well to actually use the KDE apps you're going to need to keep the KDE libraries. Maybe start by posting the output of
Code:

rpm -qa | grep -i kde

I'm not sure what to make of this other than everything starts with 'k'! :)

Section 4.5 on this page gives a description of the various packages.

Some KDE apps require qt, kdelibs and some may need kdebase (although not many), so if you intend to use some kde apps, you shouldn't remove these packages.
