Also installing/running deborphan and debfoster to get rid of packages that have been installed but are no longer needed plus if the machine is not on very early in the morning (around 04:30 IIRC) then install anacron so that your cron jobs will be run to rotate then delete the log files as necessary.
Thanks HappyTux. Actually I have already done all the things that you mentioned i.e. localepurge,orphaner, apt-get clean,etc and then when I still needed some space, I thought how about if I delete those file as they seem to give 20-25MB of free space.
Also, do these files get generated automatically? Suppose, if I remove them will they be re-generated again after some point of time?
Is there any other thing that I can remove?
