Cleaning up files on my Slackware box?


I'm running out of space on my Slackware box.

Code:
du -h /var/swaret 

2.2g
Can I delete files under this directory and not do any damage to the system? I'm suprised there are this many files just hanging out here...

its prolly the swaret packags that youve installed taking the space. You can safely remove them (rm all the *.tgzs) and it wont affect your system. They are alllready installed, so you dont need the packages themself anymore
