Yum gets dirty


Recommended Posts

Sometimes you may find the need to cleanup YUM so it will install, remove and/or update your existing files.

Install package-cleanup (which is part of the yum-utils package)

# yum install yum-utils

Look for orphaned files (packages not in the repository anymore)

# package-cleanup --orphans[/code]

package-cleanup  --cleandupes

Duplicate Package Options:

--dupes Scan for duplicates in your rpmdb

--cleandupes Scan for duplicates in your rpmdb and remove older

--noscripts disable rpm scriptlets from running when cleaning duplicates
