Hi,


I have cleaned the rpm db (manually - since zypper did not let me do it) from any packages I do not want, and given that clean slate, let's begin there:

beta1:/home/salestv # zypper in sensors
Reading installed packages...

The following NEW packages are going to be installed:

yast2-trans-en_US yast2-registration suseRegister opensuse-manual_en bundle-lang-common-en bash-completion uuid-runtime sensors readline-doc perl-doc perl-TimeDate orbit2 openobex obex-data-server nss-mdns limal-ca-mgm-perl limal-ca-mgm libtasn1-3 libtasn1 libsoup-2_4-1 libsoup libsensors4 libgvfscommon0 libgphoto2 libgnutls26 libgio-2_0-0 libfuse2 libexif libavahi-glib1 libavahi-core5 libavahi-common3 libavahi-client3 libarchive2 gvfs-fuse gvfs-backends gvfs gtk2-branding-upstream gnome-keyring gconf2 fuse ft2demos checkmedia bluez-libs bash-doc avahi alsa-plugins alsa-oss PolicyKit-doc

Overall download size: 29.1 M. After the operation, additional 61.5 M will be used.
Continue? [YES/no]:
No way does sensors need documentation.
Why is this counterproductive setting enabled, and where can it be changed?

it seems solver wants to install something even if zypper didn't tell it to install anything:

$ zypper install foo
Reading installed packages...
'foo' not found.

The following NEW package is going to be installed:
gdm-branding-openSUSE


Overall download size: 111.0 K. After the operation, additional 608.0 K will be used.
Continue? [YES/no]: n

I get a lot more packages on my VBox machine.
