I reinstalled with the full distribution and got GNOME desktop. I
tried it for a while, but I still prefer KDE. When I run:
yum install @kde-desktop
I get the error:
cups-libs-1:1.4.6-1.fc14.x86_64 is newer than
(approximately - it takes too long to run it just to get the exact
message). If I ask:
yum downgrade cups-libs-1:1.4.4-11.fc14.i686
it doesn't do anything, and if I ask:
yum remove cups-libs-1:1.4.6-1.fc14.x86_64
in an attempt to get KDE to install and then reinstall the newer
package, it wants to remove 247 packages, which doesn't sound like a
Is there any alternative to going back to the KDE live install and
trying again to install all the missing packages?
# rpm -e --nodeps cups-libs-1:1.4.6-1.fc14.x86_64
# yum install @kde-desktop
However, I question why it seems to be trying to switch from x86_64 i686.
Maybe @kde-desktop only exits for 32 bit? If so, maybe instead of
@kde-desktop, try the major kde packages, such as kdm, kdebase-workspace,
kdebase-runtime, kdebase, kdeadmin, kdegraphics, kdenetwork, kde-settings,
kdeutils; and then put KDM in /etc/sysconfig/desktop manually if necessary.
Also file a Bugzilla that 'yum groupinstall "KDE Desktop Environment"'
produces a warning that no such package exists.
