Step by step tutorial for installing KDE and removing Gnome:

  1. Open up Terminal .
  2. Log in as root via su .
  3. Enter yum install @kde-desktop system-switch-displaymanager kdm
  4. Now enter system-switch-displaymanager kdm
  5. Reboot your machine.
  6. Log in, and be sure to choose KDE as session.
  7. If you plan to remove GNOME, continue; otherwise you're done now.
  8. You can now enter yum remove @gnome-desktop . Watch out that this doesn't remove any programs you want to keep!
  9. Now you should be able to use KDE as the default Desktop Environment.
