    Default Gnome Install using yast over KDE

    From a fresh install of OpenSuse 11.2 64 bit the default is KDE. But if you want to install both KDE and Gnome on the same machine. I got to Yast --> Patterns --> And tick Gnome Desktop Environment and Gnome Base System.

    That inturn pops up with a dependency issue. That states the following:

    #### YaST2 conflicts list - generated 2010-02-24 13:18:37 ####

    pattern:gnome-11.2-20.22.1.x86_64 requires patterns-openSUSE-gnome, but this requirement cannot be provided
    uninstallable providers: patterns-openSUSE-gnome-11.3-1.1.1.i586[http-download.opensuse.org-ae9db630]
    patterns-openSUSE-gnome-11.3-1.1.1.x86_64[http-download.opensuse.org-ae9db630]
    patterns-openSUSE-gnome-11.2-20.22.1.x86_64[openSUSE 11.2-0]
    patterns-openSUSE-gnome-11.2-20.22.1.i586[repo-oss]
    patterns-openSUSE-gnome-11.2-20.22.1.x86_64[repo-oss]
    [ ] do not install pattern:gnome-11.2-20.22.1.x86_64

    [ ] break gnome by ignoring some of its dependencies

    [x] deinstallation of patterns-openSUSE-kde4_pure-11.3-1.1.1.x86_64




    #### YaST2 conflicts list END ###


    So my question is what exactly does removing and applying the Gnome pattern do. Because it seems to change alot more than just branding. It changes the default environment to GTK. How would go about reverting the pattern back to KDE after the install of all the correct Gnome Dependencies.

    Well, yeah that works, for getting rid of the dependency but uses the OpenSuse Gnome branding everywhere. Even at the login screen before you even choose what environment you want. I want the KDE branding instead. But still work in Gnome on Gnome apps sometimes.

    I confess I can't advise out of practice here because I don't use gnome. But I'm afraid it will drag in a lot of rubbish (not a poke at gnome here)

    If it were me, I would try it in a virtual machine
    Install as above and then try removing what you don't need/want
