sbopkg - installation files

I have a lot of apps installed by sbopkg

Now I'm aware of that a lot of files still stored in /tmp : the *tgz-archives and the sources-dirs also.

Do I need theses files in future or can I delete them to save space on my hd?

If you want, you can keep the *.tgz files for backup purposes. Otherwise you can get rid of it all.

It's always handy to have both the source and the built package available if needed in future. You could get by with just keeeping the built package for safety's sake or even just the source because you could always rebuild the package. I wouldn't recommend deleting both in case you need to reinstall some time and maybe the source is no longer available.

keep the packages aside and if u think about compiling the packages later manually with custom flags, u should keep the sources too.
