    I have noticed in verbose mode while booting up suse removes orphan packages so I am not sure and someone should correct but r those dependencies it removes itself?

    Are you saying that unneeded dependencies are removed at boot?

    That does not work after all. This is one of 2 things I miss about Ubuntu. I really loved apt-get autoremove.

    It doesn't happen on every reboot, I have noticed that as well but it does occur and besides there r other tools as well to remove dependencies as well.

    Ubuntu is based on Debian so they have the benefit of their package management.

    Thank you. It lists:
    Code:
    libdvdcss
    libgio-fam
    libgpod-tools
    libvisual-plugins
    Are these safe to remove?
    How exactly do I use it? i just put rpmorphan in at the commandline. Should I use rpm --all?
