Default old files in /var/lib/rpm

am i right that "Filedigests", "Filemd5s", "Provideversion",
"Pubkeys" and "Requireversion" are unused fragments of older
rpm/yum versions and can be removed?

all machines are installed in 2008 with Fedora 9....

after "rpm --rebuilddb"

imo, just do a

rpm --rebuilddb

and all the old stuff should get cleared out on it's own.

Yes, they can be safely removed. Half of them were never used at all,
the rest were of marginal use and have been dropped in rpm >= 4.9.

Yup. Generally anything that doesn't get updated on --rebuilddb is not
used. Or even more generally: only the Packages file is vital.
Everything else is just indexes which can be reconstructed from Packages
with --rebuilddb (and current rpm versions actually regenerate missing
indexes automatically)
