Re: What's on my system...

Hi all (today is my day for getting several ideas off my chest!!!!)

Having used "shhhh, you know what" for many years, with its "add/remove programs" which tells when I last used a program; and its subset "add/remove windoze elements", I'm wondering how I can do the same in FC9.

Recently, one of the threads here showed the yum --installed & yum extras, which I tried. a) I couldn't see any sort of "last used" indicator (or even better a "never used" indicator) b) the things I hand-install, like the driver for my (still not working) Creative Webcam or my Reiner cyberjack aren't (don't appear to be) listed.

Since I want to migrate toward FC10, I'd like to find me a list of the things which I use, so as to have a more targeted installation, without all the bells, whistles, pots & pans that "someone" has decided I ought to have (and not to forget one of those essential "it only works if....." thingies). It'd also be "very nice" if it were possible to "reverse engineer" the installations I've made so as to produce my own installation script. And... how can I tell if a package is "mission critical" to the life of Fedora??

On a lighter note, on the names of users, following on from "Mad Hatters", would the "Rant" specialists become "Red Queen" ("Off with her head"), and all the quiet users be "Dormouse" & get pushed back into the Teapot?????? :-))

Thanks for any thoughts

Thanks, Tim, Carroll, POC for your hints & comments!!!!! Let's see how much dark-brown-and-sticky I get into when I try my move to F10 -- last time, I got so many "don't do it" messages when I went to preupgrade, I wimped out......
