Description flo 2008-07-23 14:00:00 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008061712 Fedora/3.0-1.fc9 Firefox/3.0

Description of problem:
when i do "yum groupremove KDE", and then i check the "remove"-list, i can see "NetworkManager-gnome", anaconda, zenity, system-config-kickstart, which are _obviously_ no KDE-programs. (anaconda and system-config kickstart is removed for dependencies, Networkmanager-gnome and zenity are normally removed.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a console, become root
2. enter yum groupremove KDE
3. enjoy...

Actual Results:
i saw "remove: NetworkManager-gnome  blah... blah... zenity
remove for deps: anaconda blah... system-config-kickstart"

Expected Results:
er... all those non-kde-things shouldn't be removed :D?

Additional info:
first i had KDE, then i've installed XFCE via yum groupinstall XFCE... maybe this helps?

Comment 1 seth vidal 2008-07-23 14:06:43 UTC
if you run:
yum groupinfo KDE

you'll notice that all the pkgs you listed above are, in fact, packages in the
KDE group.

Comment 2 flo 2008-07-23 14:13:55 UTC
really oO?
but why?
why is network-manager-gnome in the KDE group?
shouldn't it be in the GNOME-group??

Comment 3 seth vidal 2008-07-23 14:17:50 UTC
that's probably a question best left to the kde team or the folks who wrote the
comps file.

You can refile against comps or kde, I suspect.

flo, re: comment #2
NetworkManger-gnome was included in kde-desktop because it is the best/only 
gui for NetworkManager atm.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2008-07-23 14:33:54 UTC
I guess it's worth mentioning 2 more things:
1.  fedora's kde implementation is kde-centric, but not a "pure" kde desktop.
2.  DE's often include overlappoing components (like NetworkManager-gnome

and is there any way to tell yum not  to uninstall those packets that are in
multiple groups (when one of them is installed?)

To help the descendants, you can use Yum extender to have a better control of what is going to be removed... I said a better control because some packages like gedit were removed and they weren't in the list (probably they were between the dependencies), of course if I still have the Networkmanager I can install it again...
Anyway... I'm here because I have the same issue.
