Can I safely uninstall these gnome packages?
I don't use gnome. I want to free up some space. I did 'urpme gnome' and received the following:

gnome-linuxconf-0.67.1-8mdk.i586 gnome-python-bonobo-2.0.0-3mdk.i586 libglade-gnome0-0.17-9mdk.i586 libgnome-vfs0-1.0.5-10mdk.i586 libgnome-vfs2_0-2.4.2-4mdk.i586 galaxy-gnome-1.0.0-5mdk.i586 libgnome32-1.4.2-7mdk.i586 gnome-mime-data-2.4.1-5mdk.i586 libgnome2_0-2.4.0-4mdk.i586 libgnomeui2_0- libgnomeprint2-2_0-2.4.2-1mdk.i586 gnome-python-canvas-2.0.0-3mdk.i586 gnome-spell-1.0.5-2mdk.i586 libgnome2-2.4.0-4mdk.i586 gnome-icon-theme-1.1.6-3mdk.noarch libgnomeprint-2.4.2-1mdk.i586 libgnomeprintui2-2_0-2.4.2-1mdk.i586 pygnome-1.4.4-4mdk.i586 gnome-vfs2-2.4.2-4mdk.i586 libgnomeprint15-0.37-5mdk.i586 libgnomecanvas2_0-2.4.0-1mdk.i586 libgdk-pixbuf-gnomecanvas1-0.22.0-2mdk.i586 libgnomeui2- gnome-libs-1.4.2-7mdk.i586 gnome-vfs-1.0.5-10mdk.i586 gnome-print-0.37-5mdk.i586 gnome-python-2.0.0-3mdk.i586

If I don't use gnome, can I safely uninstall all of these? Thanks.

"If I don't use gnome, can I safely uninstall all of these?"

No. Many applications use these libraries in addition to the Gnome desktop using these libraries. So Gnome based applications running on another desktop, such as KDE, still need the Gnome libraries in order to run.
