finding space of programs


hi

I want to free up some space because my linux partition is almost full
The problem is that i don't find any option where i can see how much space every program takes. So i'm looking for an option like in windows, where you can see the amount of MB's every program takes

thx

In Debian, you do apt-get remove <package> and then apt tells you how much disk space is used. Doesn't FC have something similair with rpm?

If not... ther was a reason why I switched from RH to Debian a few years ago

rpm -qi will tell you package info on any rpm in the database and it's size.

man rpm for more options, details, etc.

Usually the smallest of things are always right under your nose. If I don't know how a command works, always man page it first. Man pages end up too confusing, google it. If all else fails, ask someone..
