    Default Removing Gnome with Yast

    Folks,

    Just to make a test, I attempted to remove Gnome D.E. from my 11.1, using Yast and selecting patterns.

    With my surprise the only permitted operation are "install or upgrade"; I am not able to select uninstall/remove.

    My scope is to uninstall all Gnome D.E. and then install it again, to see if this solves a problem on my laptop sensitive audio controls, which stopped to work when I use Gnome, but that work perfectly when I am on KDE3.5.

    (Beside Gnome, I have KDE4.1 and KDE3.5 on my box).

    Any suggestions?

    You can do this:
    With the filter on Patterns, in the LHS highlight Gnome DE. Then in the RHS do right click on any installed application and select "all in this list" --> delete. Wait a while for the dependency errors and select your options to solve them. Then click "try again". Then proceed.

    It's not without danger to your installation -- be careful.

    Thanks swerdna!

    As well for the alert; in any case I just remove/re-install inside the same login session (KDE).
