Under /var/tmp I have:
Code:

$ pwd
/var/tmp
voicu@starshooter tmp $ ls
ccache  portage  portage-pkg  rmerge2


Only this place takes 1Gb from my HD.
Is it safe to remove all these?
Thanks.

You can blow away your portage tmp dir, i know that.

Run:
Code:
# ccache -c

and it cleans out your ccache

I dont know what portage-pkg is, but im guessing you can nail your rmerge2 dir as well (only helps when your resuming world updates if i remember)

I had exactly the same problem as I created too small a var partition. If you're in the same sit (and haven't got a monolithic / partition) you can take the same approach I did:

Code:
mkdir /[dir with space]/portage
mv /var/tmp/portage/* /[dir with space]/portage/
rm -rf /var/tmp/portage
ln -s /[dir with space]/portage /var/tmp/portage


There may be a better way of doing it (is there an environment variable you can set temporarily when emerging hungry apps?) so I'm quite prepared to be shot down for not RingTFM :-). That said, it worked for me and let me re-emerge my fried glibc.[/code]
