on a yum update,  yum didn't do cleanup.

Now I have a lot of duplicate packages, e.g.:

 rpm -q libidn-devel
libidn-devel-0.5.6-1
libidn-devel-0.5.15-1

How can I erase all the old packages?


I know of no easy automatic way to do it, other than manually. In this case,
rpm -e libidn-devel-0.5.6-1

That may be a life's work. It was in the middle of a fc3->fc4 upgrade. Over 300 packages updated.


Sigh.
