Did a search and found several packages orphaned in the CoreOS of Silverblue.
sudo rpm -q --whatrequires I get: no package requires about them.
How do I get rid of these, being that it’s a read only file system? What effects would it have on the CoreOS? Would they show up in rpm-ostree status if I were able to remove them? Is it even possible? When I try and use DNF in a toolbox these packages are not installed. I guess they aren’t in the container.
I checked these packages in my f37 Silverblue installation, and I get a slightly different result:
awarda@fedora:~$ p="libcap-ng-python3 libdecor liberation-sans-fonts liberation-serif-fonts libertas-usb8388-firmware libproxy-duktape libsane-hpaio libsss_sudo libxcrypt-compat"
awarda@fedora:~$ for n in $p; do echo "$n: $(rpm -q --whatrequires $n)"; done | grep "no package"
libcap-ng-python3: no package requires libcap-ng-python3
libdecor: no package requires libdecor
libertas-usb8388-firmware: no package requires libertas-usb8388-firmware
libproxy-duktape: no package requires libproxy-duktape
libsane-hpaio: no package requires libsane-hpaio
libxcrypt-compat: no package requires libxcrypt-compat
awarda@fedora:~$ for n in $p; do echo "$n: $(rpm -q --whatrequires $n)"; done | grep -v "no package"
But IMHO your question is valid.
Thanks for responding, Armin
I see you got a little further. You think the others are standalone packages, excluding the fonts? Why would they get flagged as orphaned?
I checked on default workstation (F37),
the fonts are from libreoffice-core-220.127.116.11-1.fc37.x86_64
libsss_sudo = sssd-common-2.8.2-1.fc37.x86_64
hope this helps.
The rest gives no result.
Thank you, ilikelinux
I installed LibreOffice as a flatpak. I wonder why they would be in the CoreOS? Let me search and find the location of all these packages. That would explain why they are orphaned.
