Complaint about update

I’ve noticed several times during updares that programs are installed that were not in the original installation. In the most recent case, mysql and xen kernel were installed although I didn’t install them originally. Please make auto update follow the installed rpm database.

Just my 1.5 cents worth.

They are being dragged in as dependencies to other packages you have installed. If their requirement have changed this can happen. Manual intervention is required. But I agree, it’s not perhaps the easiest to understand and manage for some.
