Thread: zypper remove -u WITH all recommends package

    Question zypper remove -u WITH all recommends package

    Hi
    I'm looking for solution for zypper.
    Zypper does not remove applications recommended by others previously installed on your system.
    Aptitude as standard also does not but in its case just add the following lines:
    Code:
    APT::Install-Suggests "false";
    APT::AutoRemove::RecommendsImportant "false";
    APT::AutoRemove::SuggestsImportant "false";
    in the file /etc/apt/apt.conf and delete all the packages.

    Yes,
    Currently we don't have a tool that removes dependencies.

    BTW -
    I came across the debian "autoremove" on one system recently...
    You don't have to add those lines anywhere, just run the command in a console

    Only on deb systems
    Code:
    autoremove
    And it'll go through your system and do its cleaning.

    Hi, welcome

    This is a feature not yet implemented, but one can avoid recommends to be installed by adding " --no-recommends ". But, to be honest, I don't bother too much, even install the recommends.
