Ok, I have a bit of a newbie question. I installed Antergos + deepin, and everything has been working great. I “shopped around” a bit in the “Add / remove software” app and added some package (I sadly forget exactly which one, think it was a radeon vulkan driver). I soon realized I didn’t really need this package and clicked to uninstall it, but then I got “This will also remove the following packages:” followed by basically the entire OS - all Deepin packages and a ton other basic stuff. Naturally I didn’t do this, but I’m just wondering - aren’t the base packages installed from the OS installer marked as “necessary” packages somehow? Or is it just Pacman that thinks that since nothing depends on those packages, it’s ok to remove them?
Nothing happened as I didn’t uninstall anything, but it could be easy to accidentally remove way too much of the OS by mistake. Can I avoid this somehow?
