I want to get rid of tracker. How do I safely remove it (i.e. tracker, tracker-needle, tracker-preferences)?

When I do

dnf remove tracker-1.6.1-1.fc23.x86_64

dnf lists a ton of other dependency-packages to be removed (e.g. qemu-* etc.) which I definitely want to keep.

Any advice appreciated.. thx.

you may add "clean_requirements_on_remove=false" on /etc/dnf/dnf.conf , before do:

dnf remove tracker-1.6.1-1.fc23.x86_64

yeah , I use KDE , a few packages will gone like nautilus , but hopefully I do not miss it.

to list all packages that requires tracker you may do :

dnf repoquery --whatrequires tracker --alldeps --qf "%{sourcerpm} %{arch} %{repoid}" | grep x86_64

well actually this will still report that dependency-packages will be removed like "brasero", "gnome-boxes", etc.. so no, this did not the trick.

You can just uninstall it without removing the dependencies but you probably just want to disable it forever. Look at this topic to know more.
