How to remove kdevelop (apt-get)


days ago i have installed kdevelop using apt-get and it took nearly 360 MB from my 4GB drive now i want to remove it
i tried the following
Code:
linux:/home/ahmad # apt-get remove kdevelop
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Selecting kdevelop3 for 'kdevelop'
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  kdevelop3
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 removed and 123 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B of archives.
After unpacking 37.2MB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
of course i chose n until i know what you think about this problem

so, What do you think?

You are wondering about the size difference? That's probably because there was quite a number of packages that had to be installed to resolve dependencies, but these packages won't be removed unless you explicitely specify each of them.
You could, for example, have a look at the 'development' section in YaST's software installation module and remove the packages that you're not interested in.

thank you spirit
apt-get have downloaded about 160 MB for over 20 packages
i have already tried YaST that but i did not find out what should i remove

just right now when i was reading your post i thought about asking if apt-get have a log file with the packages it downloads it would be much easier that way
or am i only dreaming

The following might be helpful, I don't know if there's an easier solution.

Use the following command to learn about the installation date of kdevelop3:
Code:
barnabas:~ # rpm --query --info kdevelop3
Name        : kdevelop3                    Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version     : 3.3.4                             Vendor: openSUSE Build Service
Release     : 13.4                          Build Date: Thu Sep 14 15:10:12 2006
Install Date: Sun Sep 17 15:14:27 2006      Build Host: build07
[...]
So we've got "Sun Sep 17 15:15:19 CEST 2006" here. Then the following command will return a list of all packages that have been installed on Sun Sep 17 2006:
Code:
rpm --query --queryformat "%{NAME} %{INSTALLTIME}\n" --all | (while read NAME TIME; do echo $NAME $(date --date=@$TIME); done) | grep "Sep 17 .* 2006"

you can not Imagine how happy I am that i have been able to delete kdevelop as i had only 77 MB left on the linux drive now i have 442.2 MB which means that i can start downloading programs again

it took sometime time to delete those packages but for the outcome that was really great

thank you very much for your help and i really appreciate the trouble you have been through to find this solution

Thank you again and GoodLuck
