Have you tried removing them through package management in YaST (probably
Control Panel -> System or Software...)? This would be the ideal route.
Otherwise, you could purge manually from the command-line. Of course, to
remove/disable the lock (file in use), you might have to boot into
Either way, take the simpler route. You seem to have not found your way

software because SuSE is very self-contained.
