Free up disk space
hi folks,

i was just wondering how can i free up disk space. i am running Slack 9.1 with GNOME only & i only installed OpenOffice & MPlayer & gDesklets. and all that is using me 3.3 GB. i think there is something wrong with it. so is there a tool to free up disk space or what can i do?

any help would be appreciated. thanks a lot.

The best tool for freeing up disk space is "removepkg"

Go to

and search for xdiskuage ... it's pretty flexible
and most people will preceive it as "friendlier"
than a simple
du -m /

As subekk0 indirectly suggested: Get rid of unneeded packages. If you use Gnome you can remove KDE and every other Window Manager for example.

well i only have GNOME, so i don't know what other packages to remove. i am afraid i need most of them. maybe the problem is somewhere else!

Which is where df, du or xdiskusage come into
the picture ;)
