    Default Completely remove a package as well as dependencies


    Hi, I'm new to openSUSE and maybe this is a silly question.
    If I install package foo that requires foodep1 and foodep2 the two are
    installed automagically by yast.
    How can I cleanly remove the foo package (this means remove not only
    foo but also foodep1 and foodep2 if no other package requires them)?

    Thanks,
    Paolo

    Open YaST>Software management and bring up the packages you are
    interested in; click on the box to the left of the package name until it
    shows a trashcan/wastebin.

    Click on Accept.

    This will work but requires me to remember that foodep1 and foodep2 (in
    my silly example) have been installed by foo installation.

    I was looking for something automatic (like apt-get autoremove).
    Is there any solution?

    Thanks

    AFAIK the answer is no.
    This question is asked many times already and I recite from what I
    remember is the quintesence of the answers there.
