Uninstall KDE ?


Hello everybody!!

I have a problem with konqueror... When i access to the windows partition (vfat), konqueror crashes. I don't know why because if i use nautilus or if i access to this partiton using shell there's no problem.

So I have decided to Uninstall KDE and reinstall it cleanly, but using Fedora I don't know hot to do it. As in install/remove packages utility, i can't uninstall kde, i can only uninstall some optional packages of kde.

Suggestions? Thanx

I don't think there is a kde group, where you can uninstall all kde packages.

So you have to uninstall all kde packages and kde programs probably.

Its not really what you want I think. In fact I don't really knows how works dependencies in Fedora, it depends what you use (apt, yum, or whatever the install/uninstall uses for you).

You should uninstall kdebase packages, kdelibs etc but not all kde programs

But before trying that, just launch konqueror with your favorite shell. Like Konsole.

type in:
kfmclient exec .

or just this:
konqueror

And go to your windows partition.

Now that konq crashed, look at the konsole for explicit errors messages that should help you to determine what is causing the konq crash.

I have a segmentation Fault!

So, I uninstalled manually by the bash: kde-base and everything that dependes of if.
Then I reainstalled them, but konqueror still hangs. Ough!

May be it's a file of configuration, but it hangs on any user I use...

Thank u.

yes it's openGL i bet

two thing to do:
first as either a test or a fix turn off java scripting in qonqeror.
if it doesn't crash anymore it's openGL

only real solution is to rebuild Qt without support for openGL
or of course leave java scripting off

Oh, may be it's because JavaScript as I installed jdk 1.5 a few days ago... But I have disabled java and javascript in konquerors and still crashes. May be I have not disabled at all...

I have also removed the /usr/share/jdk1.5/bin/ from the $PATH, so it uses the /usr/bin/java

Something to say is that only crashes if I acces to /mnt/win but not if i acces into the subdirectories
For example, if f i go to /mnt/win/Program Files it doesn't crash.

Still crashing

mmm... you are right. May be it's because i installed Nvdia driver, i think that before there was no problem...
How long since I went to the win partition xD

I edited the xorg.conf properly on that day. But now i have just added the Option "NvAgp" "2"

Still crashes.

Ok. If it is, you have to check in /usr/share/apps/konqueror/

Now, you should try yum to delete kde. Even if I don't know if it works good when uninstalling softwares, fighting with dependance..

Then you will have to fight against the shell.

So yum is your friend now. Because it works in console too. I think its yumi for the gui, and yum for the shell. Am I right ?

Good luck anyway!
