Angry Internet Temporary Files


I have been using linux for a short time. I enjoy linux except for my machine has slowed down a great deal since I have loaded it. I think it is cause a temporary internet folder or file is killing it. Can anyone tell me on a general maintance view. What files and or folders I should delete and or empty to clear this up. I am using Red Hat 7.1. Please include a short line to the loaction of the file. I will be in your debt.

if your using netscape 4.7x, it doesn't delete the entire cache when you select clear cache, just that sessions, so they tend to grow. what i did was to put the following line in my cron to delete it automagically every day:

rm -rf /home/<your user name>/.netscape/cache/*

or you can put it in /etc/rc.d/rc.local than it will do it on each reboot.

you may want to do a :

du -sh /home/* to see how large your home directory actually is, that will narrow the search down abit

i haven't use redhat since ver. 6.0, so in not up to speed on it, but somebody will post with idea's.

what processor, how much memory?
