in the context of another issue with SMB I was about to install an extra package. apt-get claims a bunch of packages to be removable. I recently updated to the August version and I guess did several incremental updates in the past so apparently there are a bunch of leftovers on my vero4k? I was thinking the update routines do delete orphaned packages automatically but apparently they don’t?
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
armv7-libass-osmc armv7-libnfs-osmc dh-python gnupg-agent libbind9-140 libcdio13 libcryptsetup4 libdevmapper-event1.02.1 libdns162 libenca0 libevent-2.0-5 libicu57 libisc160 libisccc140 libisccfg140 libiso9660-8 liblvm2app2.2 liblwres141
libncurses5 libntfs-3g871 libprocps6 libpython3.5-minimal libpython3.5-stdlib libssl1.0.2 libunistring0 libwebpmux2 python-apt python-certifi python-chardet python-dbus python-gi python-gobject python-gobject-2 python-idna python-imaging
python-pexpect python-pil python-pkg-resources python-ptyprocess python-requests python-six python-unidecode python-urllib3 python3-distutils python3-lib2to3 python3.5 python3.5-minimal samba-common wireless-firmware-osmc
Use ‘sudo apt autoremove’ to remove them.
Would it be really safe to let apt auto-remove these packages?
I guess it surely holds true for Python 3.5 as there is a 3.7 on now. What about Python 2.7 which is also still installed? Is it still needed?
