"package-cleanup --cleandupes" doesn't appear to clean duplicate kernel-headers packages
Last modified: 2014-01-21 01:10:29 EST
Description of problem:
I had the situatation where I had to cleanup lots of duped packages, but
package-cleanup didn't clean up duplicate kernel-headers packages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
same for me on F8 with yum-utils-1.1.14-4.fc8 - maybe it is intentional?:
# package-cleanup --dupes
Setting up yum
# rpm -q abcde kernel-headers
anything starting with kernel is intentionally ignored.
But does that make sense?
Newer packages like kernel-headers and kernel-firmware are updated, not installed, so there shouldn't be duplicate versions of them.
Wouldn't it make sense for package-cleanup to only ignore dupes on packages that it "installs only"?
