gentoo-cruft

Find files that are not recorded in the Gentoo package database.

Scans the file system and compares it to the CONTENTS catalogs in the Gentoo installed package database. Files that are not listed in the package database are displayed. MD5 sums and mtimes can also be calculated in order to list files that have been modified since installation.

Usage

Just running cruft at the command line will perform a simple comparison of installed files. Specifying --md5 or --mtime will check for modified files. Full command line parameters are as follows:
