a proof of $Subject:
[nico at nico2 ~]$ rpm -qa | grep -i firefox
[root at nico2 ~]# du -sh /usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.*
rpm -qif on /usr/lib/firefox-22.214.171.124 and on /usr/lib/firefox-126.96.36.199
reported that the directories weren't owned by any package.
Same problem with kernel modules (that occupied a much
larger amount of space).
Why aren't these files removed? I run yum clean all regularly.
Is there a way to purge entirely old packages?
