Well, it's not quite that easy... Beagle libraries are used by a bunch
of installed programs, but I un-installed all of the rest and have my
nice snappy thunderbird back .. :-)

Thanks for all of the suggestions, made for fun reading

rpm -e $(rpm -qa | grep beagle)

works nicely

It looks good, but it won't remove beagle because kerry needs it.

But in general I agree with your elegant approach.


You can safely remove kerry and anything beagle.

Right, and I always remove kerry - I was just pointing out a flaw in the
one-liner provided earlier as an example.

and make some noise about it, perhaps it can attract the attention of
developers that develop bloated software.

In my mind it is really sad that anything not related to gaming or heavy
engineering simulations abuses hardware thousands of times harder than it
could or should...
it used to be that open source software was a lean and mean fighting
now the typical linucs install is about 2-3x that of an xp partition, don't
know anything about vista. and running the proggies often brings up
situations like beagle or a software update, much better than 10.2 but still
awful timewise, on dual core or even quad core cpus with oodles of ram!!!!!

Well it still can be very lean and mean, but if you install suse, you
have to do some work to get it that way.
