Two Questions
I just installed the new version of gcc with ./configure;make;(su)make install. But then I accidently ran make clean, what should I do to fix whatever I did :\

Also, what is the command to let me see how much free space I have left on my harddrive?

- Thanks

Make clean just removes some of the files created by ./configure and make in the source directory. It will have no effect on the install. If you want to recompile a program with other options for ./configure you can do "make distclean" in the source directory to return it to the state it was in when you first extracted it.

to find out the free space use command du

No, du tells you how much space a directory is using. To find free space try


or if you want it in sensible units


df -h
That's disk filesystem

df = disk filesystem
-h (switch) human readable
