Hello, I've been on man for about one week now; lots of file went criss cross in mcc.

 

As a former Debian user, is there an autoremove in urmpi, and why not if there isn't?

You mean orphans? No, there isn't, I don't think we're a fan of the idea, it's kinda complex and easy to break. But you can use urpmi_rpm-find-leaves to generate a list of them, and sort through it manually.

 

I don't think I know an rpm distro that is a fan of this :)

 

Red Hat, Fedora, amonst others also do the same. Yum has gotten better but it still doesn't clean everything. Likewise for aptitude in Debian/Ubuntu, but it's better than the rpm equivalents for doing this.
