Say you added rpm fusion to the repositories, and you installed restricted codecs. Than one might think, I want to make the system as free as possible from any proprietary packages or restricted, patented codecs. So you removed the repositories and than you want to uninstall the codecs which are restricted. How can you do that, namely which restricted codecs does rmp fusion provide? Thanks Ervin

So, don't you remember what packages have you installed from rpmfusion?!
