Uninstall packages


Hi

When i install new packages on my Mandrake box using "Install software" (urpmi) i most of the time get informed that some more, dependent programs needs to be installed (librarys etc). Which is totally OK and a nice feature.

If i would like to uninstall the programs a few days later its impossible to remember all the dependent programs/files that was installed along with the "main" program.

This results in that i remove the main program but leaves the rest on the system, which makes my system grow more than nessary.

Question:
Is there a easy way to keep track of all programs installed on a specific ocation, so i can uninstall them all as easy?

Like a uninstall based on what got installed (installation time or something simular..), if you know what i mean?

Kind regards
Klas
