An installed library that has no installed packages depending on it is referred to as orphaned. One of the tools used to determine which libraries are orphaned on a Debian system is named deborphan. What is the Fedora equivalent?

  • Since this question is not really to do with Debian (merely using it as an illustration), would you kindly remove the 'debian' tag? – jmtd Jan 24 '11 at 13:44

It appears that package-cleanup can perform a similar task with the following command:

$ package-cleanup --leaves

or, to include more than just libraries

$ package-cleanup --leaves --all

package-cleanup is in yum-utils package, which is available for installation via the Fedora repositories.
