In a misguided attempt to get XBMC to run (it crashes immediately after starting,) I uninstalled pulseaudio.
Sadly this failed to cure the XBMC problem but when I uninstalled pulseaudio a list of dependencies were uninstalled as well. In my ignorance I failed to record this list. I now want to restore my system so that I have sound once more. Is there a log file somewhere which will show what was removed so I can reinstate please?
I would suggest to try to read the sticky notes which will help you with your sound problems. If not post the info required and someone will help you. to reinstall pulseaudio you just need to go in YAST and reinstall it, it will add all dependent packages it needs.
Let me say that first and formost to anyone that reads this message, you can just disable PulseAudio when trying other fixes, it works the same and if you have remorse over the disable, you can reverse course and just re-enable PulseAudio again. Here are the two terminal commands you can use.
Many thanks. Unfortunately I too assumed that if I re-installed pulseaudio the dependencies would also be re-installed. This, I find is only partially true because the machine specifics determined during the install are not simple dependencies and are not reinstalled automatically.
I am aware of the stickies thanks. What I wanted was a log which gave the files uninstalled because all was working well before I messed up.

Also, there is a log file of what was installed/uninstalled at
