How to configure --auto-orphan

This is the problem. --auto-orphans want to remove
kernel-nrjQL-desktop-devel-4.1.12-1omv-1-1-omv2014.0.x86_64. I don’t
want that package removed. How do I configure --auto-orphans so this
package is not removed?

Moderator help! I sent this post via e-mail and it ended up in this thread? Seems like it should be a new thread in English>Support to me… Wonder if there is a way I could have done this better via e-mail?

urpmi kernel-nrjQL-desktop-devel-4.1.12 this command do nothing but with it kernel-nrjQL-desktop-devel will be removed from orphans list

The package is in ‘/var/lib/rpm/installed-through-deps.list’ yet
‘–auto-orphans’ still wants to remove it. That seems wrong???

The normal way is to send a email to the category (here:
The subject will be the title of the new topic.

There are some restrictions. Among them:
– some categories don’t allow the creation of a topic by everyone (example: Announcements and communications)
– the title should contain 10 characters or more
– a title cannot be duplicated
– …
Almost all restrictions can be tweaked by the admins, depending on the needs of the users.

Unfortunately no it results in urpmi saying ‘no such package exists’ even though package is installed. I think this is because package is no longer in repo.

There is a way to do this which is to remove package from ‘/var/lib/rpm/installed-through-deps.list’.
