Like... if I do a yum remove of cyrus-imapd.i386 and cyrus-sasl.i386 it
wants to take 205 additional packages with it on the "deep 6" ride. Most
are not what I would have guessed had any affiliation. Printre config,
KDE stuff, Gnome stuff...
Anyway, I decided that I'd leave those two and just remove the devel and
other stuff *very* carefully.
It's hell when you decide to learn this stuff and do a full-blown
install so you'll have what you need when you needed it and then can't
get rid of what you (think) you don't need when you don't.. well, joking
