Default cruft after perl-cleaner --all

perl-cleaner could not deal with

/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/XML/SAX/ParserDetails.ini
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i686-linux/Encode/ConfigLocal.pm

I ran
equery belongs
and neither turned up.

Should I just copy them away and remove them in a week if nothing turns
up or are they known to be "needed cruft".

thanks,
allan

It is cruft! Some leftovers from perl-5.8.8. There should be new ones in
the corresponding locations for perl-5.12.2 after upgrading and running
perl-cleaner.

/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.12.2/XML/SAX/ParserDetails.ini
/usr/lib/perl5/5.12.2/i686-linux/Encode/ConfigLocal.pm

After the switch to a new perl version and successful run of
perl-cleaner it should be safe to remove everything below /usr/lib/perl5
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl for older perl
installations, except stuff belonging to packages which were not
installed by the package manager or have been altered manually.

Indeed there were.

Yep. I had one file left over that it printed out to. I ran equery b
file/name to see if it belonged to anything and it didn't. A little rm
did the trick.


Is there a way to find "cruft"? Some script or something? My install
is pretty old and I would guess there are a few left over files here and
there.

Emerge portage-utils and run qfile with the --orphans option. The man
page gives examples of how to use it.

I tried like the man page says but it only found one file that was
orphaned. Either portage does a exceptional job or I'm not doing
something right. lol
