Removing packages

http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi. When you install a package, for example vlc, YaST will install some other packages "to resolve dependencies", right? But if you then want to uninstall vlc, the automatic installed packages that came with the installation wont be marked to be deleted. Correct me if I'm wrong :) But is this something I should worry about and try to find the other packages and delete them to? Or how does this work? If not, there will be many unnecessary packages installed after a while if I install and uninstall many programs. Just wondering ;) thanks (Distributions)
