    Default Package-cleanup/orphaned RPMs in Suse?


    Fedora (well, Yum, but Fedora uses Yum) have a useful little util called
    'package-cleanup' (http://linux.die.net/man/1/package-cleanup) that
    looks at dependencies and tells you which RPMs aren't a dependency of
    any other RPMs. The idea is that you can find which RPMs are installed
    and don't need to be (because you no longer have the app you installed
    them for). So far I've not found anything similar in Suse/Yast.

    Is there a simple way to do an equivalent to "package-cleanup --leaves"
    in Suse to find unused library RPMs?

    Someone has asked 'a year and a bit ago' (http://tinyurl.com/aq835x),
    but they never seem to have got an answer (well, someone said "Yast can
    do it" but preceded it with "unfortunately", which implies a missing
    "'t" from "can").

    Hi,

    funny, I just read the opensuse weekly news and found an article about
    this, 'rpmorphan - Find & delete orphaned packages in openSUSE | SUSE &
    openSUSE' (http://tinyurl.com/cqfy9l) Maybe this is what you are
    searching for

    That's great, thanks. As seems to be the case with Suse now that I've
    used it a while, it's also a bit friendlier than what's available for
    Fedora
