Hi --- Is there a way to print all of the installed programs by
category. I would like to know what development libraries and tools are
installed and also what is installed that I never use.&nbsp; <br>
Basically I want to remove everything not in use so that another
upgrade will take less time. Once I remove a program, library, or
something else, how will I know that there will be no affected
Also is there something which will reveal that an executable or library
has never been used or infrequently used. <br>
I have not installed many packages outside the portage sandbox. Most
packages that were installed outside portage were installed in a
non-portage area within usr.<br>
<hr size="2" width="100%"><br>
Note: Why are there administration, laptop, and server related posts at
gentoo-user and less at gentoo-admin or the other ones? The amount of
emails at
gentoo-user is too high volume IMO. <br>
Why not remove gentoo-user
and instead add more lists like
gentoo-install, or whatever else. The gentoo-user list is misleading
since every
user using gentoo is a user. It should be removed instead.<br>
