Here is my question to all Linux gurus.
Red Hat 7.2 was installed on Compaq Desktop without GUI option.
Can I de-install Gnome using RPMs on the Red Hat CDs?
Thank you.

Yup, thats what the rpms are for.

just mount the cd, find the rpms and do
rpm -Uvh <rpm-name-here>

notice that there is a whole bunch of them
maybe you should consider ximian-gnome (if you have
a fast connection)

good luck

Nick,
I was trying to install Gnome from RPMs on the CDROM and the installation failed on the dependencies:
[server]: cd /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS
[server]: rpm -Uvh gnome-print-0.29-6.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
   libgnomeprint15 = 0.29 is needed by gnome-print-0.29-6
   libgnomeprint.so.15   is needed by gnome-print-0.29-6
[server]: rpm -Uvh libgnomeprint15-0.29-6.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
  gnome-print >= 0.29 is needed by libgnomeprint15-0.29-6

how can I resolve it?
Thanks

try to rpm them both at the same time

rpm -Uvh gnome-print-0.29-6.i386.rpm libgnomeprint15-0.29-6.i386.rpm

in the same command, if this fails, then something else
is wrong.
