    Question Looking for equivalent of Deborphan in openSUSE 11.3

    Hello,

    I am looking for a package in openSUSE 11.3 that is equivalent in function to Debian and Ubuntu's deborphan, which cleans up leftover packages and temporary files and directories after updates and upgrades.

    Thanks a lot for your help and suggestions.

    rpmorphan is available from Packman repo IIRC (maybe not for 11.3 yet)

    Edit: Via software search

    Hi deano,

    Which one should I get? The top (Factory) or the one in the bottom frame?

    I'd go with the later (version) package I guess. I don't have any experience with it, so can't really offer any further advice. You might want to do a little reading first:

    rpmorphan - Find & delete orphaned packages in openSUSE | SUSE & openSUSE

    Hi deano,

    I found rpmorphan very easy to install and use. Thanks for your help.
