Subject: [gentoo-user] How can I find all "orphaned" files?
Date: Thu, 24 Mar 2011 21:14:08
1 Hi,
3 is there any way to find completely all "orphaned" files on my
4 system (recursivelly from /)? I mean all files (and directories)
5 which do not belong to any ebuild installed...
7 I know, there is "qfile" with "-o" option, but its syntax is
8 not clear to me. I tried "qfile -o *" but that is apparently
9 not the correct syntax, as all I got were a few top-level
10 subdirectories and nothing more...
12 I also found "" script in forum but I'm not
13 sure it works properly. When I tested it on /etc it found
14 a lot of "orphan" files, directories and links, which actually
15 are not "orphan"...
