Hmmm, I don't know how exactly to do this. Most probable the output of
"apt-get check" should be enough. 

You could:
  rpm -q -a --qf "%{NAME}\n" | sort | uniq -d
that _should_ print the duplicated packages only, I think. 
Then for each package do:
  rpm -q package_name
and you should see the duplicates...

You should be able to remove the old version only and leave the new one
alone. I think you just need to do "rpm -e package-version-release"
using the version-release of the old package.
