Angry yum remove


This is the deal now... I would like to remove several games FC4 came with [ Can't stand robots and many others...]

What's the effect of yum remove? Will I end up removing crucial packages that precede robots?

I think yum remove only removes the desired package and other packages that are used by that package so long as they are not needed by other packages. Somebody can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that's how it works. You should be able to safely remove your desired game.

Yes, "yum remove" will remove that package and any packages that depend on it. For a game this is usually just the game. Read the tutorial for more information.

It didn't work... What did I do wrong?

Code:
[root@localhost ~]# yum remove Robots
Setting up Remove Process
No Match for argument: Robots
No Packages marked for removal
[root@localhost ~]# yum remove Robots*
Setting up Remove Process
No Match for argument: Robots*
No Packages marked for removal
[root@localhost ~]#

You're probably not specifying the right package name. Try "yum list *obot*", then if there's a match that satisfies you, remove it with "yum remove <pkg_name>".

BTW, I have no idea if robots is a separate package; it might be part of a games package that contains multiple games, including robots.

Okay I looked into this, and the game is called "gnobots2" and is part of the package "gnome-games". So do "yum remove gnome-games".
