How come when I tried to use apt-get to remove a package to regain disk space, it starts to install extra packages that take up more space than before?
See output below... (and another question is: when I'm thru with apt-get can I remove all the files under /var/cache/apt? this is to make room for a knoppix liveCD remaster)
# apt-get remove emacs21
