    Default ensuring zypper dup does not reinstall packages

    I recently uninstalled all games, but `zypper dup` wants to reinstall them.
    The same applies to some of the xfce packages (xfce4-power-manager, xfce-screenshooter, others...)
    I tried to completely remove xfce, including using `zypper rm -t pattern xfce`.
    How can I avoid this?

    in yast select Software Management

    then select the package that is not required, and set to "Taboo -- Never Install"

    zypper dup will respect such selections

    if no games are required, do the same for the package 'patterns-openSUSE-games '
