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
me why"
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.
