Question GNOME/KDE package collections - partial installation

Hi!

Is it possible to install only parts of the larger GNOME/KDE packages (gnome-games, kdegames, kdeutils etc.)? Occasionally there is just a subset of the programs/games that comes with the packages that I'm interested in installing. For example, kdegames ships with a ****load of games, but only a couple of them are of any interest. With gnome-games, the problem is the other way around. The gnome-games package includes only 5 games, where the official site lists 16.

I'm using Fedora 12.

So my core question will be: Is there a way to check/uncheck subpackages included in larger package collections (preferably through YUM)?

Grateful for any help!

try

Code:
yum provides */knetwalk
for the command you would like to have.


EDIT:
This particular one is only found in kdegames (and some translations), so here, you're out of luck (or have to install yourself)
