not sure what the best/most effective method to remove unused packages from the system.
i noticed on these forums a package called rpmorphan but this is not available in the fedora repo.
I downloaded rpmorphan from sourceforge but on attempting to install this it complained about missing perl-base yet this is not in the fedora repos and a download from sourceforge went on to request nested dependencies.
I dont want to start installing package after package and dependencies because this is precisely why I want to "cull" my packages in the first place.
I've installed a plethora of packages over time (many of which were used once and I no longer keep/use). I dont have a record and was hoping there is some "automated" means?
