Explanation: Even on my server/workstation, where I also have some bigger games, my “/” partition in only 40 GB, filled up for about 65%. The packages I don’t use, just sit there incl. their deps. They don’t slow down the system or bother other programs. So why uninstall? One day I might want to use them, and they’re there, ready for use. Removing the deps is not that easy, since you may have installed a lib as a dep for one program and thus have seen it as a dep, but you also may have installed packages after the first one, that use the same libs.Then uninstalling the libs that the first program depends on, would ask for the uninstall of the ones instelled later as well.
Summarizing: linux is not windows (where every program brings in it’s own dll’s).
so things really is different, coz am afraid i might ran out of disk space someday, so removing unused dependency packages might help give me some extra space
also about robin_listas
sorry sir, I didn’t get your point, just a linux newbie, didn’t really know what is the difference between the 2 (Gnome terminal and xterminal), just curious
also, this just got in to my mind, when i install software or packages, it download thus packages right? then install it
now after the installation of those packages, what happens to the packages? where is it going ? or where is it staying coz it is dowloaded. can i remove those packages or .rpm files after installation? to save space?
