       package-cleanup - clean up locally installed, duplicate, or orphaned packages

       package-cleanup [options] <item ...>

       package-cleanup is a program for cleaning up the locally-installed RPMs.

       -c <config file>
	      Use alternative config file (default is /etc/yum.conf).

       -h, --help
	      Help; display a help message and then quit.

       -q, --quiet
	      Print out nothing unnecessary.

       -v, --version
	      Report program version and exit.

       -y     Agree to anything asked.

	      List leaf nodes in the local RPM database.  Leaf nodes are RPMs that are not relied
	      upon by any other RPM.

	      List installed packages which are not available from currently configured reposito-
	      ries. This is identical to "yum list extras", which may provide better output.

	      Remove old kernel and kernel-devel packages.

	      List  dependency	problems  in the local RPM database. If any problems are found it
	      will exit with an exit code of 1.

	      Scan for duplicates in the local RPM database.

	      Scan for duplicates in the local RPM database and clean out the older versions.

       --count <COUNT>
	      Number of duplicate/kernel packages to keep on the system (default 2)

       --all  When listing leaf nodes also list leaf nodes that are not libraries.

	      A package name that matches this regular expression will be considered a leaf.

	      When listing leaf nodes do not list development packages.

	      When listing leaf nodes do not list packages with files in bin directories.

	      Do not remove kernel-devel packages when removing kernels

       List all dependency problems:
	      package-cleanup --problems

       List all packages that are not in any Yum repository:
	      package-cleanup --orphans

       Remove old kernels keeping 3 and leaving old kernel-devel packages installed:
	      package-cleanup --oldkernels --count=3 --keepdevel

       List all leaf packages with no files in a bin directory	whose  name  begins  with  either
       'perl' or 'python':
	      package-cleanup --leaves --exclude-bin --leaf-regex="^(perl)|(python)"

       As package-cleanup uses YUM libraries for retrieving all the information, it relies on YUM
       configuration for its default values like which repositories to use. Consult YUM  documen-
       tation for details:


       yum.conf (5)

       See the Authors file included with this program.

       There  are  of  course  no bugs, but should you find any, you should first consult the FAQ
       section on http://yum.baseurl.org/wiki/Faq and if unsuccessful  in  finding  a  resolution
       contact	 the   mailing	 list:	 yum-devel@lists.baseurl.org.	 To   file   a	 bug  use
       http://bugzilla.redhat.com     for      Fedora/RHEL/Centos      related	    bugs      and
       http://yum.baseurl.org/report for all other bugs.
