Cleaning up old libraries Contributed by zorzella on Friday, November 09 @ 06:11:51 GMT
As a frequent upgrader, I face this problem of having sometimes multiple versions of libraries that get installed with each upgrade, and are never deleted. Every now and then I search for these, and purge them to free up some space. Just yesterday I removed some old libgals: libgal3 libgal4 libgal6 libgal7 libgal8 libgal9 libgal11 libgal12 (I kept the newer ones, 13, 14 and 15, still required).
My point is: as libraries (and possibly other packages such as emacs*-el) are only meaningful to be installed while there are packages that use them, wouldn't it be a good idea to have them marked as "volatile" (or something), and removed when no installed packages use them any longer?
DanielS: libgal* has been extremely controversial as upstream tends to bump the soname every few days. Older versions have to be kept around for compatability, but after that IMHO they should be removed.
