    Default How to uninstall updates?

    Hi,
    I want to revert my suse to state before last updates. I forget about rule "If there is everything ok, don't touch anything, don't apply any updates". I'm very frustrated if one day I've got something working, next day it stops work. Yesterday I installed some updates and today my desktop effects (KDE 4.4.4) stop works. So my question is - where can I check what updates were installed, and is possible to check version of packages before last update.

    sorry for my frustration, and yes, I know that is typical behavior for Windows user, but I just want to have working OS.

    first thing to try is just to try and re-store 'desktop effects'. to do this select from the start menu:-


    system settings


    desktop

    desktop

    effects

    then put a tick in 'enable desktop effects' and press enable

    /var/log/zypp/history

    You can also print the list of current rpm packages installed sorted by date:

    [DATE]
    rpm -q -a --queryformat "%{INSTALLTIME}\t%{INSTALLTIME:day} \
    %{BUILDTIME:day} %-30{NAME}\t%15{VERSION}-%-7{RELEASE}\t%{arch} \
    %25{VENDOR}%25{PACKAGER}\n" | sort | cut --fields="2-" | less -S
    [/DATE]
