    reinstalling GNOME from the cd's

    Is there a way to reinstall gnome from the CD's?
    Even when some of the gnome packages have been upgraded?
    Any way to do yum groupinstall gnome
    but from the CD's?

    i have never done this, but i will share my thoughts: the easiest way to do that, i believe, would to use the Add/Remove applications GUI interface (if you cant get into gnome you might could do it from kde). the reason i would use the gui interface is becuase there are a ton of dependencies for gnome and doing that manually from the command line, i would think, would be a whole new experience in frustration.

    My attempt to run it:
    [D_U@catv-50631f2b ~]$ system-install-packages
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/share/system-config-packages/SinglePackageWindow.py", line 22, in ?
    import gtk.glade
    ImportError: /usr/lib/libglade-2.0.so.0: undefined symbol: atk_relation_set_add_relation_by_type
    also:
    [D_U@catv-50631f2b ~]$ system-config-packages
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/share/system-config-packages/MainWindow.py", line 14, in ?
    import gtk.glade
    ImportError: /usr/lib/libglade-2.0.so.0: undefined symbol: atk_relation_set_add_relation_by_type

    The RPMS are on the CDs in /mnt/cdrom/Fedora/RPMS

    you can attempt to install from rpms there

    It might be best to do rpm -F [I think], package.

    You might need to boot into KDE or Xwindows to uninstall GNOME, as you cannot remove it while running

    BASH && Beer && Bass! Now THAT makes sense!!
