    Default removing qt4 (libqt4)

    I want to get rid of Qt4.

    zypper rm -u libqt4




    Does anything fundamental (that I didn't install myself) require any of these?
    As long as the system boots and I can access zypper, I'll be content. ;-]

    The only thing I care about (that I recognize) is lmms,
    which also works with Qt5 -- I'll build it from source if I need to.
    Is there a way to install lmms with zypper and prefer Qt5?

    Is there an easy way to taboo all of the unwanted packages (e.g. amarok)
    that would be reinstalled via `zypper dup`?

    Well, you have to decide yourself if you want/need those applications still using Qt4...

    I'm not sure at the moment why zypper wants to remove wine and audacity as well, those shouldn't need Qt4.
    Probably because of the "-u" (--clean-deps) switch, unrelated to libqt4.

    Sure, neither the "system" nor zypper need Qt4.
    Even YaST is Qt5 based since openSUSE 13.2...

    Is there a way to install lmms with zypper and prefer Qt5?
    If you create an RPM package, you can install it with zypper (or rpm, doesn't matter).
    If you want to prevent "zypper dup" replacing it again with the standard version, you need to lock/taboo it or add a repo with the Qt5 version (which you could create yourself on OBS)

    Is there an easy way to taboo all of the unwanted packages (e.g. amarok)
    that would be reinstalled via `zypper dup`?
    "zypper al amarok" or "Taboo" in YaST.
    Or "uninstall" the pattern that recommends it.
