The most unexpected problem in Slackware for me. Space disk!!!
 
Hello slackers,

After installing slackware about 6 months ago, installing, compiling, pkgs,removepkg, upgrading to KDE 4.7 from Alien Bob, compiling Gimp 2.7, etc, etc I find out that I have a space disk problem.

My 9 gb disk is full and the strange thing is that I don't keep my data in Slackware partition. My home folder have very few files. I did a full disk Slackware install minus KDE language files.

Any tips or direction in this situation?

Thanks in advance

Maybe check /tmp
Code:

du -sh /tmp

If you're installing stuff from SlackBuilds.org, then you'll have to clear up /tmp/SBo every once in a while.

There is an awesome program called filelight: a nice way to visualize what's taking so much space. It's probably the temporary files.

I prefer ncdu, I find that much more clearly representing the sizes and it also gives you the option to delete the files while browsing the directories.

thanks for all tips. the ncdu program was totally new for me but very helpful. I cleaned a lot of files easily with ncdu and as most of you told me the problem was caused by temporary files.

thanks again
