    Default Not or but and KDE4 and Gnome

    Is it safe to install Gnome into the KDE 4 version of SUSE 11? Or is it better to install KDE 4 into the Gnome version of SUSE 11?

    The reason I'm asking is because with Gnome I can add as many weather applets to a panel as I need and the Gnome weather applet has my town in it. The CPU temp sensor in Gnome works with my motherboard. The CPU temp sensor in KDE 4 doesn't work with my motherboard. Also it's nice to have both desktops in one distro. Thanks for any help.

    Since the package manager automatically will take care of any conflicts it really doesn't matter weather you add Gnome after install or KDE. You can also perform a custom install using the openSUSE DVD and have both installed from the get go. KDE and Gnome are just user interfaces on top of the X11 system and are not mutually exclusive. In fact you can start a wide variety of GUI's from the login screen. There is even the capability of running multiple X sessions all using different GUI's simultaneously.

    Go ahead by all means, and feel free to post back! I'd be very interested to know if there's any truth to the rumours that installing KDE+Gnome may screw up your system beyond repair!
