Freshening RPMs and obsolete files
Date: Mon, 18 Oct 2004 21:31:20 +0200
Say I install an RPM foomatic-1.0.rpm which contains the files /usr/bin/foo
and /usr/bin/foo_helper. Some months later the project maintainers merge
the functionality of foo_helper into foo and release a new RPM
foomatic-2.0.rpm which now contains only /usr/bin/foo.
If I install this new RPM using rpm --freshen or rpm --update, will the
old /usr/bin/foo_helper file be automatically deleted, or will it remain
in my filesystem wasting space?
