I don't if you still care to have input from the crowd, but...
http://etherpunk.com/files/cruft_output.txt.bz2 (24k) is mine.
I currently run apache, postfix, and all the fun stuff and used the virtual domain howto (so I have tons of stuff) and I tend to do a worldly update about every 6 months.

This file is the result of the command:
./cruft > cruft_output.txt 2> cruft_output.txt
So all errors (and yes, I did see some weirdness) should be placed in here.

If you're intersted, here is my world file too:
http://etherpunk.com/files/world.bz2

I also ran regenworld a mere 15 minutes ago, so that's as recent as I can get.

I noticed that the cruft script wanted to nuke some of my conf files such as awstats.

Also, becuase I did the virtual howto (I think) it wanted to nuke my /etc/postfix/mysql-*.cf files -- which are *very* important for the virtual hosting.

I hope this helps.
If their is anything I can do to help, PM me.
Kenny

ok, I'm a bit confused.

I went to etcatmur's site and looked at his scripts.

dep, cruft, cruft2 all seem to be recent.
what's the "official" word on whether they've been abandoned?

I started using findcruft, but an older version of cruft still works (0.0.12), whereas I read that this newest one doesn't (so I haven't tried it). EDIT: I tried .13 (most recent) and it works too on my box.

so are dep and cruft still to be used?
or replaced by unclepine and findcruft?


thanks everyone for the great script work.

cruft tries to delete /etc/raidtab, I think it should be added to the ignore list.

With the latest http://home.jesus.ox.ac.uk/~ecatmur/my-bin/cruft I get:

Quote:

cruft: line 297: `motif-profile': not a valid identifier


Fixed with the following patch:
Code:

293c293
< function motif-profile() {
---
> function motifprofile() {
502c502
< $(has_version '=x11-libs/openmotif-2.2*' && motif-profile openmotif-2.2)
---
> $(has_version '=x11-libs/openmotif-2.2*' && motifprofile openmotif-2.2)

this link is quite old, and currently dead.

Has anyone got a new version (as the one in the start-post is outdated) ?

allright.

too bad, seemed to have a really nice purpose.

Do you know another way of preventing 'dead' files and stuff?

actually, the script still does work quite well. It just will generate a few false positives, that's all (but the rule about not to ever delete a file that you don't know about is always valid, so it isn't really a big issue)

Nice script, thank you.

You may just add a test to check if /root/.cruft is present, otherwise it die in a not really clean way.

The requested URL /~ed/main/my-bin/cruft was not found on this server.

Where can I get that script?

/edit: Ok I could download 1.0.4 version, is this the latest?

I think by 1.0.4 you mean findcruft-1.0.4. cruft and findcruft are scripts by two different authors. ecatmur moved his original cruft script to svn. Link

Just "bend" it over xargs :)
Code:

cat <file with cruft> | xargs rm -rf


Beware, it won't ask for acknowledgement ;-)
