bad compile -ran out of disk space

good day!

i compile wine. i forgot i was low on disk space. in the middle of the compile process, it stopped and told me no more disk space. i thought reseting the pc would remove the files coz i thought they were in /tmp or they were temporary files only. but it did not work. my disk usage is 100% and kde is so slow and tends to have errors every now and then.

is there a way to remove those files that were used by the compiler to compile wine? the compile stoped because i was full on disk space. it did not finish and it did not install. i want to get rid of wine but dont know how. thanks!

you can use the find command to find all the files that were modified after the time you started the compile process and pipe the output to the rm command.
the only problem is that all the files that were modified are going to be deleted, even relevant files that you may have accessed. so take a backup of those files.
