    Question zypper update wanting to reinstall removed software

    When running zypper update on my tumbleweed install, it is wanting to reinstall the following:
    Code:
    The following 18 applications are going to be installed:
      "Five or More" Four-in-a-row "GNOME Chess" "GNOME Disks" "GNOME Klotski" "GNOME Mahjongg" "GNOME Mines" "GNOME Nibbles" "GNOME Robots" "GNOME Sudoku"
      "GNOME Tetravex" Iagno "Lights Off" Quadrapassel Seahorse "Swell Foop" Tali Videos
    The games were installed during the system's installation, but I have removed them. Is there a way I can tell my system to not updated/installed when I run 'zypper up'?

    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure those are installed as part of the Gnome pattern.
    Before you do your next update, you can blacklist the specific packages you don't want re-installed.
    Open YAST > Software Management
    Search for your package
    Rt-click on the package and select "Taboo - Never Install"
