I think the root of your problem here is lack of information. Red
has a reason that it wants to remove those 45 packages. But there is no
way for you to find out why. If you had been able to click on a "Show
button, it is likely that this whole discussion would not have happened.
On a related note, I have had Red Carpet think that it had the
figured out, but when it tried to actually install the packages, it rpm
due to a dependancy problem. But Red Carpet did not tell me what the
was. I had to exit Red Carpet (making sure that it did not clear the
and use "rpm -U --test *.rpm" to figure out the problem myself.
