Yesterday evening, I got the KDE source-rpm from Fedora and found out how to extract and to patch it - then I tried to install it, and it seems to have got in a clinch with some files remaining when KDE is removed over Yum. So, now I wanted to run a "clean" Kickstart install without KDE components - but it STILL installs kdebase as a dependency for something. Oh, man!

Looks like the guy who worked here before me, was right when he wrote "Fedora s***s" as a commentary in a Kickstart script...
