I think Vojtěch means something like "apt-get purge xyz".

Exactly. Thank You.

What "apt-get purge" is doing is the default of RPM?

"apt-get purge" does NOT delete any user data.
"apt-get purge" does only delete configuration files, except it is
in the users home directory or something similar.
What does RPM? - it always removes the configuration files. If the
configuraton file was changed, a backup (*.rpmsave) will be keeped.

So please be a little bit more verbose what you want to archive
compared to the current status.
