Thread: where's my /opt/gnome folder?

    Yeah, especially the "autoremove" features.

    Ever had the "pleasure" to fix another users installation who trusted this autoremove without having at least a second look, what is getting removed?

    That's real fun.

    You can try "rpmorphan", but be aware that all of those autoremove features do not work reliably (not even aptitude).

    Also read "man rpm" especially the parameters related to requires and provides.

    yea.. i guess rpmorphan is the best solution here..
    i used deborphan under ubuntu, and it worked fine..

    Removing orphaned packages is a little.. tricky, I wouldn't recommend trying it out much, it can have nasty side effects if dependencies aren't correctly set or calculated - as in software simply stops working or you can even cripple your installation completely if it decides to remove some "oh so critical" packages.

    Perhaps in a future version of zypper they'll introduce some form of package cleanup - I won't hold my breath on that tho'.
