rpmorphan finds "orphaned"[2,5] packages on your system. It determines which packages have no other packages depending on their installation, and shows you a list of these packages. It intends to be clone of deborphan Debian tools for rpm packages. It will try to help you to remove unused packages, for example: * after a distribution upgrade * when you want to suppress packages after some tests Several tools are also provided : * rpmusage - display rpm packages last use date * rpmdep - display the full dependency of an installed rpm package * rpmduplicates - find programs with several version installed * rpmextra - find installed packages not in distribution notes : ******* For all users : [1] this rpm package will make rpmorphan work in command line mode. If you want to use a graphical interface, you will need to install extra rpm packages : perl-Tk or perl-Curses-UI. For Fedora users : [2] Note that orphan is used in the sense of Debian's deborphan, and is NOT the same as Fedora orphaned packages which are packages that have no current maintainer.
