Does anybody know how to deal with such a situation? I was doing a emerge -ND world. It got interrupted due to full disk usage. I have a 14gb hard disk. half of it was empty before the emerge. Now, it is full and the emerge also got interrupted. my user files are less than 1 gb. So the portage is taking about 10-12 gb. This is very annoying. I tried eclean and rm -rf /usr/portage/distfiles/* && rm -rf /var/tmp/portage/* , but nothing helped. Kidly help.

(I reached on this conclusion that portage is taking the space since the /usr folder is about 12gb large....which is huge. Kindly help me)

Try to delete Portage tree and next recreate it:
Code:
cd /usr
rm -fr portage
wget <Mirror>/snapshots/portage-latest.tar.bz2
tar -xjvf portage-latest.tar.bz2

Oh I am sorry! there was a mistake. The /usr directory is about 4.5 gb (is this big or is this normal). I had counted the size of the remaining directories and arrived on the conclusion that since the other folders total to 2 gb, the size of /usr should be 12.5 . Now the total of the sizes of the folders is approximately 6.2gb whereas all of the 14 gb is used. (by total of the sizes of the folders, I mean that the sizes of all the folders in / except the mnt folder)

try deleting /var/log/*.log
check stregth of the folder first .sometimes it goes as much as 2 3 gb

emerge -NDu world does not install any new applications.it is supposed to update the world only. the portage it self needs about 1.5 to 2 gb space . as we install more and more apps /usr will get bigger. you cannot steal the portage's space.

It can install new packages, when new version of an already installed package has additional dependencies.

actually, you can (kinda):

I found the easiest way to save space with portage and also make it faster is to put it on a seperate ext2 with dir_index and a 1K block size(could be located on a loopback file as well). This ends up taking portage down to about 250-300MB. Just remember to change the locations of your distfiles and pkgs directory to avoid filling up the ext2 partition.
