Summary0004007: Uninstall of evolution breaks gnome desktop
DescriptionI was cleaning up my desktop, uninstalling applications that I do not need on my MythTV Xen server. I uninstalled open office and evolution. When I uninstalled evolution, it apparantly broke gnome. I only say it is the dependency in evolution because reinstalling those fixed gnome.

I was unable to re-log in with X-Win32 LIVE after uninstalling evolution. Thinking it was something wrong with X-Win32, I logged into the Dom0 server and used Virtual Manager to open up the desktop. No gnome, it went for the lighter desktops and when I explicitly set it to gnome, it broke.

When evolution was uninstalled, I noticed a lot of things were being uninstalled with it, but I just assumed those were related applications. Oops on my part!!

To remedy this, I first installed evolution.x86_64, but that didn't do it. So I looked in yum.log and installed everything that was uninstalled with evolution.

I placed the list of things that was uninstalled in the additional information section.
