No, my bad -- very much not the same. I tried installing back
several, not including NM; got the error; figured out by trial and error
which one was requiring NM; dropped that; installed the others; went
back, got more, and again managed to re-install everything except what
turned out to be the PackageKit complex and krb5-auth-dialog.

OK, I'll wait. "yum install gnome-packagekit krb5-auth-dialog"
will now get everything I haven't been able to add back.
