Welllllllll, although I went ahead with it anyway not everyone might
want to. See below:
(icarus pts4) # yum erase rpm404-python librpm404
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Rogue Red Hat Linux 8.0 base
Server: Rogue Red Hat Linux 8.0 docs
Server: Rogue local icarus 8.0 updates
Server: Rogue 8.0 local updates
Server: Rogue Red Hat Linux 8.0 updates
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
Resolving dependencies
..Dependencies resolved
I will do the following:
[erase: librpm404.i386]
[erase: rpm404-python.i386]
I will erase these to satisfy the depedencies:
[deps: firstboot.noarch]
[deps: redhat-config-packages.noarch]
Is this ok [y/N]: y
Erased:  librpm404.i386 rpm404-python.i386 firstboot.noarch redhat-config-packages.noarch
Transaction(s) Complete

I decided I did not need the other packages but..... ;-))
FWIW the above also takes out anaconda if installed but you are correct no disk
space ck. ;)

One more question, when rm packages does it really need to find updated packages
and and dload needed headers?? I could maybe see the headers but updated

Thanks for the help,
