Yeah, it works, afaics only because you have to select KDE always. But
it doesn't work for the default install with gnome, as gnome is selected
already as default, and todays anaconda does not add the packages from
the 3rd party repo to the to-be-installed-pacakge-set if you don't
switch off gnome once and reenable it.
