Ran Smart Package Manger once and never again.  I had to reload many of
the applications I prefer to use after smart  package decide to remove
them.  The worst thing was it decide to force the issue on the
gnome/kde debate.  Smart Package decide I was not to use gnome removed
it and loaded kde for me instead.  In the end I had such a mess that
the best thing to do was a full reinstal.
