Auto removing packages is only dangerous when you are doing it wrong. I've never seen any big distro breaking after doing an auto remove, have you?
Yes. That's exactly why it's not being implemented in the way anyone is suggesting.

Most of the time auto removing packages works 99% of the time. :P

Yep. I auto removed wine from a Xubuntu installation last year (instructions were found on the ubuntu forum) then watched the shell output list core components (including bash) being recursively force removed!

I'm looking through the instructions for installation of 3rd party applications in the Wiki here:

https://wiki.solus-project.com/3rdParty#WPS_Office


I notice the install ("it") commands have "rm" (remove) on the same line. Example:

Code: Select all

sudo eopkg it wps-office*.eopkg;sudo rm wps-office*.eopkg
Are we really supposed to install and then remove the same package, or are these alternate commands to be used depending on whether we wish to install or remove the package?

The 2nd part doesn't have eopkg in it. The line you've quoted is 2 and 3 of the below

What the parts do are:
1. Build the package into an eopkg file
2. Install the eopkg onto your system
3. Remove the eopkg file that was created in step 1 (not uninstall the package from the system)

Thanks, that makes sense!

I didn't notice the eopkg wasn't present in the command.

Yeah the rm is just removing the leftover file, you can keep it if you want for later re-installs but it's mostly unnecessary.

Is there a way for me to uninstall a package along with all its dependencies, provided no other package uses those dependencies? I couldn't find any options for this in the pisi help. I feel removing packages without removing their dependencies would leave a lot of unnecessary packages that will only occupy more space over the course of time.
