    Default Stop YaST from installing software on its own

    Hi guys.

    I uninstalled rhythmbox and totem, but yast wants to install it automatically whenever i use install/remove. Any help where i could 'deactivate' this feature? I don't want to have exactly that software on my computer.

    Thanks.
    Running openSUSE Leap 42.3 + KDE

    This has been asked a few times already here...

    Either mark those packages you do not want as "Taboo -- Never install", or activate the option "Ignore recommended packages for already installed pacakges" in YaST's "Options" menu.

    Removing the pattern(s) that recommend those packages should help as well.

    Another way would be to disable the installation of recommended packages completely by setting "solver.onlyRequires = true" in /etc/zypp/zypp.conf. But this might also cause certain missing functionality of freshly installed software, you'd have to install recommended packages that you want/need manually then.
