It is a recommend. When I remove the lock and do zypper without

--no-recommends nothing will be pulled in.

Being able to reproduce it means we are getting closer to finding
out the reason ;-)

First, please create a solver test case as described on

Did that.

Then go to and follow the
steps described there to get a nice dependency graph. (The article
is quite old, I hope it still works.)

Unfortunately the graph making is no longer supported and the text
file did not mention anything about dependencies.


I'm not an expert for solver testcases (actually I looked at one for the
first time 5 minutes ago ;-) - but it looks like
contains all the dependencies (including Recommends) for all packages.
Search for "texlive" or just "tex" there ;-)

I also just found zypp-NameReqPrv - have a look at its manpage ;-)

The boring alternative is to search for a zypp expert and ask him/her to
check the testcase ;-)

Es könnte zum Beispiel sein, daß Du inzwischen besser bist als
95% der anderen Teilnehmer hier. Das ist für mindestens 45% der
Leute, die das von sich glauben jedoch nicht der Fall. :-)
