rpmorphan finds "orphaned" RPM packages on your system (packages which have no other packages depending on their installation). Console and graphical interfaces are provided. It is clone of the deborphan Debian program, but for RPM packages. It provides also some others RPM tools: rpmusage, rpmdep, and rpmduplicates.
|Operating Systems||POSIX Linux|
Release Notes: The rpmdep tool was improved: it can also display depending packages (-depending option). It can also work on all installed packages (the -all option).
Release Notes: This release fixed a bug where undefined was used as a SCALAR reference.
Release Notes: The libs are moved to /usr/lib/rpmorphan. The dependency on Data::Dumper is removed. Rpmduplicates takes care of architecture.
Release Notes: A new option (suggests) is added: if set, the suggested packages are used as required packages. A global configuration file is added (/etc/rpmorphanrc). A bug was fixed regarding file names with spaces.
Release Notes: In GUI mode, a new hotkey was added to display the package summary in a popup. In Curses mode, the menu length was reduced to be less than 72 characters. A bug that prevented the Curses module from loading was fixed. The code was cleaned: some duplicated code between rpmorphan and rpmusage was removed.
