openSUSE: How to uninstall GNOME?

Here's how I uninstalled GNOME from an openSUSE system. Actually, it was SLES11-SP2, but the procedure is the same for openSUSE.

First, I listed all GNOME-related packages I have installed:
# rpm -qa | grep gnome

It's a long list. I started from the bottom:
# zypper remove gnome-keyring

That gave me a long list of 35 packages to be removed. I clicked "y" for "yes".

Rinse and repeat until no GNOME packages are installed on your system.

    1. It's been too long since I did that - I don't remember.
