removing rpms

Reported by: bradshaw Owned by: desai

so I will start by saying Suse is garbage, but I have to use it. Now on to the real issue. by default Suse installs rpms( if you could call them that ) called gpg-pubkey. For instance on my system I have a bunch of them:

Now the problem I am having is that when I try to remove them with bcfg it fails due to the fact there is really only 1 package name but it coorisponds to multiple packages.

n223:~ # rpm -q gpg-pubkey gpg-pubkey-0dfb3188-41ed929b gpg-pubkey-15c17deb-3f9e80c9 gpg-pubkey-3d25d3d9-36e12d04 gpg-pubkey-9c800aca-40d8063e

Removing packages: gpg-pubkey?

rpm --quiet -e gpg-pubkey

< error: "gpg-pubkey" specifies multiple packages

I am doing -r all just to clerify

I found the option --allmatches fixes the issue. I am not sure that is always a safe thing to do, but it certainly worked in my case.
