remove unused dependencies

Post by jaideep_das » Mon Apr 27, 2009 15:01

I want to remove unused dependencies which are left behind by the packages i have uninstalled, how do i list these packages with equo.
One more thing I have removed all the packages which i don't need but still sabayon is taking up lot of space, it is that sabayon packages are larger in size than other distro's.

sabayon packages are larger as they include not only the binaries but also all the headers/source code usually found in the *-src packages on other distros.

To remove all the stuff you should read

Code: Select all

little typo:

Code: Select all

equo --help

however take a look at the "unusedpackages" voice, but be careful when removing them.
Also, if you want to free some space do a cleanup once in a while

Code: Select all

equo cleanup

hmm not sure why I put that in [ code ] brackets, you should have got him to read the help, which he evidently has not, rather than just giving him the answer :twisted: he wont learn otherwise, plus he should always RTFM ang google before posting :alien:
