    Default Packages keep reinstalling themselves

    Hello everyone. Does anyone have the issue of software packages that keep re-installing themselves after you remove them? For example, I usually remove all the games. However, after every update or individual package installation, the games are back. This is becoming very aggravating. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    You haven't specified which version of openSUSE you're using - on 11.4,
    if you use Packagekit to update your installation, it is known to ignore
    the taboo/lock settings and will reinstall things that are part of a
    dependency set.

    If you'll specify what version of openSUSE and what packages are
    reinstalling, that'll help you get more specific answers.
