removing default games


I just want to find out if it would be alright to remove all of the default games installed during intial installation. I'd like to free up some space. The games are located in /var/lib/games /user/share/omf/games-gnome /usr/share/sol-games /usr/games

Im thinkin Im ok but wanted a heads up with some of the more experienced users around here.

Because it seems like everything is interelated to something else in the system. You remove something here and you break a sym link there... That sort of thing. I dont know, maybe Im being to careful...

try:

rpm -qa | grep games

or replace games with the games your looking for. if you see packages, then you can uninstall then via:

rpm -e <packagename>
