NAME

package-cleanup  

SYNOPSIS

package-cleanup [options] <item ...>  

DESCRIPTION

package-cleanup is a program for cleaning up the locally-installed RPMs.

 

GENERAL OPTIONS

-c <config file>
Use alternative config file (default is /etc/yum.conf).
-h, --help
Help; display a help message and then quit.
-q, --quiet
Print out nothing unecessary.
-v, --version
Report program version and exit.
-y
Agree to anything asked.
--leaves
List leaf nodes in the local RPM database. Leaf nodes are RPMs that are not relied upon by any other RPM.
--orphans
List installed packages which are not available from currenly configured repositories. This is identical to "yum list extras", which may provide better output.
--oldkernels
Remove old kernel and kernel-devel packages.
--problems
List dependency problems in the local RPM database. If any problems are found it will exit with an exit code of 1.
--dupes
Scan for duplicates in the local RPM database.
--cleandupes
Scan for duplicates in the local RPM database and clean out the older versions.
--count <COUNT>
Number of duplicate packages to keep on the system (default 2)

 

LEAVES OPTIONS

--all
When listing leaf nodes also list leaf nodes that are not libraries.
--leaf-regex
A package name that matches this regular expression will be considered a leaf.
--exclude-devel
When listing leaf nodes do not list development packages.
--exclude-bin
When listing leaf nodes do not list packages with files in bin directories.

 

OLDKERNELS OPTIONS

--keepdevel
Do not remove kernel-devel packages when removing kernels

 

EXAMPLES

List all dependency problems:
package-cleanup --problems
List all packages that are not in any Yum repository:
package-cleanup --orphans
Remove old kernels keeping 3 and leaving old kernel-devel packages installed:
package-cleanup --oldkernels --count=3 --keepdevel

List all leaf packages with no files in a bin directory whose name begins with either 'perl' or 'python':
package-cleanup --leaves --exclude-bin --leaf-regex="^(perl)|(python)"

 

FILES

As package-cleanup uses YUM libraries for retrieving all the information, it relies on YUM configuration for its default values like which repositories to use. Consult YUM documentation for details:

/etc/yum.conf
/etc/yum/repos.d/
/var/cache/yum/
