Yast2 uninstalling


I installed a patch I did not need. It even told me I did not need it. I still clicked it and installed. Nothing is wrong, it's just when I start the update it says I installed it. I looked through all my rpms and could not find it. I really don't think it installed it. It took like a second to download, supposedly it was 36 megabytes so I doubt it. Please help me I can't sleep!

Chances are, then, that it didn't install. I have noticed that YAST does that - if you don't need something it doesn't download but YAST still completes as if it has.

Thanks. The thing I installed wa the kernel source. But as you said it did not install. I ended up needing it for my nvidia driver so I just installed it through the package manager. So thanks though.

Cool - I normally go through and install the source or devel packages for everything. I probably don't always need them, but I'm fixed for when I do!
