Orphan Packages
 
I no longer use, nor really have interest in the following packages.
They are free for the taking.

Orphan packages
 
Hi,
I'm sure that this issue has already been discussed here, but I can't
find any such discussions.
Anyway, is there an easy way to find orphan packages, i.e. installed
packages that don't have repository behind? For example, if I used to
have a layman overlay and now I deleted it, all the packages that
belonged to that overlay are now orphans. I would like at least to get a
list of those packages.

You can use eix for that. I don't know the exact syntax but it works.

emerge --depclean -p and make sure everything looks OK. If it does,
remove the -p option. OK means it is not removing something you need.
If it mentions removing some version of python, make sure you have ran
python-updater. There may be others so look carefully.

Also, I run revdep-rebuild -i afterwards just to make sure.

That's not what it does :P depclean only removes packages that are not
in world and are not a dependency of another package. You can emerge
package foo from overlay bar and then remove the overlay, but depclean
won't clean it because it's still in world.

I missed the overlay part. I thought he was talking about removing
dependencies of a removed package that nothing else needed.

Sorry for the confusion.

Exactly :)
Thanks for the pointer to eix, its man page says that
"eix-test-obsolete" does exactly that.

grep <overlayname> /var/db/pkg/*/*/repository

A woman walked into a bar and asked the barman for a large double
entendre, so he gave her one.
