I recently installed gnome-commander.
Because gnome-commander needs 'meld', 'exiv2-libs', 'gnome-vfs2-smb'
these were also installed.
Today I removed gnome-commander with 'yum remove' but yum did not
include (or even suggest) meld, exiv2libs and gnome-vfs2-smb for
These packages were exclusively associated with gnome-commander.
No other app needs them!
I know yum builds on rpm and rpm itself is not so versatile with
respect to removal but shouldn't yum(rpm) include some more stringent
'removal-options' (including removing the gnome-commander created
directory ".gnome-commander" in the home folder).
apt/synaptic seems to include a 'complete removal' option.
