now it didn`t just remove all of gnome but also ALL OF KDE (i had KDE
installed aswell) and all the gnome development tools that i had installed..
is that normal?
Development tools depend on their corresponding packages. And you
probably removed gdm or something KDE depended on, without the KDE
equivalent in place. Sounds normal, unless you have a specific example
of a dependency that doesn't make sense.
yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment" (-y)
and now it`s just installing a little more than 100 packages..
that leaves another 100 packages that are being removed when you remove
gnome but not being reinstalled..
Yes, but did you reinstall "KDE (K Desktop Environment)" and "GNOME
Software Development" ? If not that is not a fair comparison.
