Fedora :: Clean Up Unused Packages?

Dec 6, 2009

I've been running fedora 12 for a few weeks now and I was wondering how to clean up all of my unused files. I have accumulated quite a bit of software in the form of updates and downloaded packages since starting and I can only assume these are going to continue to build. I have rpmorphan and it lists all of the programs I'm not using but I'm wary of it because it lists WINE as one I haven't used but I use it everyday to play a game. I'm afraid I'll erase something I need, but I'd like to keep my system as clean and slimmed down as possible.

Fedora :: Yum Is Broken - Clean Up Packages After An Upgrade ?

Jun 13, 2010

I was trying to clean up packages after an upgrade and I broke yum.


There was a problem importing one of the Python modules required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:

Please install a package which provides this module, or verify that the module is installed correctly.

It's possible that the above module doesn't match the current version of Python, which is:

Ubuntu :: Get Rid Of Unused Packages?

Apr 25, 2011

I have Ubuntu Meerkat (10.10) running on an Inspiron E1505. I have it setup for dual boot with Vista. I installed Kubuntu on top of Ubuntu and now have a blue Kubuntu system loading screen where it used to be purple.

I've installed a lot of programs, most unnecessarily, so I'd now like to get rid of ALL of the unnecessary programs and associated packages or dependencies. I'd also like to get rid of KDE, and any Ubuntu packages I never use.

Is there a quick and relatively easy way to do this?

Ubuntu :: Data Finding That 9 Packages Were Made Available And 33 Unused Ones Were To Be Deleted?

May 30, 2011

As usual I was notified that there was an update available via the Update Manager which I duly accepted.I was then confronted with a popup which advised that there was a Distribution Upgrade and that it was to be a partial upgrade.

Finding that I would not go away I accepted the data finding that 9 packages were made available and 33 unused ones were to be deleted. As this is my first experience of this is it something I need worry about and if so what should I do about it?

Ubuntu :: Any Way To Clean Up Trash (Packages)

May 8, 2010

I downloaded and installed k3b from the software center and remember seeing that after it was installed, an additional 180MB would be taken up. so the installation process took about 2-3 minutes after unpackaging or whatever it does. But when I went to uninstall it, it took like 2 seconds. Is there a way to clean up packages that hasn't been uninstalled all the way or haven't been used? Is that normal?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading Packages In 10.04 - Clean Install On USB Pendrive

Feb 23, 2011

I just performed a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 on my flash drive, allocating a 6.5 GB persistence file. Of course, the first thing I did after booting from it was to run sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade. After a lengthy install process, I was eventually notified that several packages failed to upgrade. I rebooted and tried again, still to no avail. Now, whenever I install a new package or attempt to upgrade with apt-get, I receive the following or a simmilar output:


Setting up fuse-utils (2.8.1-1.1ubuntu2.2) ...
creating fuse group...
udev active, skipping device node creation.
update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Hulu Not Working On AMD64 / Start Clean And Install Necessary Packages?

May 3, 2010

videos videos work great, but unfortunately, when i try to access videos on hulu.com, i receive this error message: "we're sorry but we're unable stream this video to your system. this may be due to an adobe software limitation on 64-bit linux systems."

this is strange because hulu videos were working after i installed lynx but mysteriously stopped working. i don't have the swfdec-mozilla package installed nor the mozilla-plugin-gnash nor the flashplugin-installer.

what do i need to do to start clean and install the necessary packages?

Fedora :: Create A New Partition In Unused LVM Space

Jan 10, 2010

I just installed Fedora 12 in a laptop with a big hard drive and used LVM for it. The thing is that I used just a fraction of the LVM total size to create the "/" partition and decided to leave the task of creating the other partition (the data partition) with the rest of the LVM space after F12 got installed. Unfortunately I found that Gparted is apparently unable to perform that task of creating a new partition in unallocated LVM space. Is there any way I can create a new partititon in that unused LVM space?

Fedora :: F11 Freeze Randomly When It Was Sitting Unused / Solution For It?

May 27, 2010

I thought I should share a solution to a freeze issue I was having. Fedora 11 was running well but then started to freeze randomly when it was sitting unused. This could happen multiple times per day. I would have to power off to get it to reboot. Firefox was always open at the time of freezes and I had recently loaded several programs to try and run wmv files....Xine, GStreamer. So, I unloaded the programs. I also went into Firefox options and removed Xine as the default program for opening different types of files. The freeze issue is now cured. I have no idea how this caused the freeze and I never did get wmvs to run but at least the freeze issue seems gone.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Boot Failure In 15 After Removing Unused LVM Volume?

Jul 18, 2011

So what happened is i had a small encrypted lvm volume that i no longer need because I have bought an external HDD and used truecrypt on in. So after I transfer all the files off of the encrypted partition, I restart and drop into single user mode and remove the unneeded volume. When i attempt to restart, instead of going to the login screen, when the boot progress bar is full, it says "welcome to emergency mode: enter rootssword for maintenance or press control D for normal mode" or something along those lines. I tired control+D, but that just brought me right back to the emerengy mode screen. I put in my root password and tried startx, but then x gave me this error: "can not start D-bus, can you call q-dbus?". After that i tried both "service dbus start" and "dbus-launch", both of which failed. Is there any quick remedy to this situation, or do i have to reinstall

Fedora Installation :: Preupgrade Leftover Packages - 176 F13 Packages Remaining

Nov 17, 2010

I recently upgraded from F13 to F14 using "preupgrade". This is the first time I've used preupgrade. So far, F14 is running OK. There are some leftovers from F13 and I'm wondering if this is correct.

Q1: There are 176 F13 packages remaining. [alfrugal@localhost Documents]$ rpm -qa | grep fc13 | wc -l 176 Is this OK? FWIW, after the upgrade, I ran "package-cleanup --orphans" as recommended by the "preupgrade" page on the Fedora Project wiki.

Q2: Also, my GRUB menu was correctly updated for F14, but it still contains the three entries it had for F13. Is it normal for the preupgrade process to require the user to clean up the obsolete entries from the GRUB menu?

Fedora :: Yum Cache So Big Even After It Clean All / Why Is So?

I have a small older HP OB6000 laptop with F14 on it and only 10GB of disk.

I've been weeding out a lot of packages I don't need on it to carve more user disk space.

One of the biggest disk consumers is /var/cache/yum. My problem is that even after a yum clean all it still consumes over 450MB.code...

Fedora :: Clean / Tmp Safely At Shutdown

I have been using this tip at URL.. to delete the temporary files created in /tmp for quite a few Fedora versions. But, I just found out that it does not work in F12. Is there are reason why it doesn't work?

You can put this into /etc/rc.d/init.d/syslog into the "stop)" section. This will clean up /tmp at every shutdown and keep your disk clean. Please note that you should not run this command when X-Windows is running.

Fedora :: Clean Up After Aborted Preupgrade?

Apr 27, 2010

I've just finished upgrading to f12 from f11 using the DVD ISO and all is well - I'm looking for a bit of guidance for a n00b on cleaning-up after an aborted preupgrade.A yum --enablerepo='*' clean all didn't clean-up as much as I'd hoped it would and neither did preupgrade-cli --clean - the latter of which reported that there was nothing to clean.I've upgraded all packages and removed orphans and just have the latest kernel installed.

Here's what I think I need to do:

# ls -l /boot | awk '{print $1 " " $8}'
-rw-r--r--. config-
-rw-r--r--. config-
drwxr-xr-x. efi
-rw-r--r--. elf-memtest86+-4.00


oh, now that i've posted this, i see a related post: Need to clean up failed preupgrade which confirms my thoughts.
