Hi,

I was wondering if anyone could explain what I'm missing here or why removing vino would corrupt the system? I thought vino was an optional remote desktop server and didn't think that gnome and such would depend on it but when I ran 'yum remove vino' and pressed y without paying heed, BOOM. Gnome crashed, then kernel crashed. It boots but is in shambles. Fortunately not a big deal as I had nothing on it. I am a casual linux user but learning and have the least experience with the Fedora/RH line so I'm trying to figure out how where I went awry here.

Thanks, Scott

That's why you have to be careful when you remove packages. How aboutdnf remove -noautoremove vino

After further examination Fedora itself was not compromised. For some reason that I can't recall now, I thought there were other system issues after the incident. I was able to start the system and repair the damage that I had done. Thank you both.

Regards, Scott

It is more correct to say that it nukes Gnome and not Fedora itself. Fedora Xfce, for example, works happily without vino.

The dependicies are:

  • vino is required by control-center
  • control-center is required by gnome-shell

With gnome-shell gone, most of the rest of Gnome will be gone too.

The packages accountsservice, gnome-keyring-pam, mutter, switcheroo-control, telepathy-filesystem could remain installed when specifying the -noautoremove option.
