Slackware: Removing the preinstalled games after installation


Running Slackware 12.1, I need to delete all of the games from my install on Slackware, I'm not reinstalling either, I removed the xgames package, and the folder /usr/games/ I can still play terminal games though, anybody know what else to do?

EDIT, never mind, deleted them, delete post.

The best way is not to install them in the first place! Second best way is to ask in the Slackware forums.

The three primary culprits in slack for games by default are probably "bsd-games", "xgames", and "kdegames". In your case bsd-games. Just remove the package and it will get rid of pretty much everything.

Code:
removepkg bsd-games
(If memory serves me right.)

(Saw your edit, but figured I'd give a alternate answer to delete them
