This is a brute force way to get it done:

1. Save (redirect) your output to a file, e.g. "package-cleanup
--orphans > orphans".
2. Make the file executable; e.g. "chmod +x orphans"
3. Use gedit to edit the file; e.g. "gedit orphans"
   a..Examine the files listed and remove any line containing a
package you want to keep
   b. Replace all instances of ".fc10" with ".fc10 \ "
   c. Insert the following two lines at the top of the file:

#! /bin/bash
yum remove \

    d. Append " \" to any remaining package (line) without one
    e. Save file
4. Do "sudo ./orphans"
