The hard way

yum-plugin-remove-with-leaves

This extension removes unused dependencies which have been incorporated by an installation package that would otherwise not be removed. Helps maintain a system clean of libraries and unused packages.

This extension adds the following options to the remove command:

 --leaves-exclude-bin
    Do not remove leaf packages containing executable binaries. 
 --remove-leaves
    Removes unneeded dependencies for other packages.

Instalation :

sudo yum install yum-plugin-remove-with-leaves

How it works :

sudo yum erase `packaged (write your package here without quotes)` --remove-leaves
