This is my second Gentoo desktop install.
I use Gentoo mainly for server purposes.

I have installed a new Gentoo on my desktop computer and I have noticed that the basic is system is using to much of my disk space. I want to reduce it with 1 GB.

In this stadium, I want to run Gentoo from a 6 GB partition. I know this isn't optimal, but I want to do it this way!

File system usage after a basic install (following 2006.0 manual) and compiling the kernel with genkernel, ati-drivers and gnome-light emerge:

Code:
Filesystem             Size   Used  Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda3              6.6G   3.2G   3.1G  51% /




emerge --info:

you can also share your /usr/portage with NFS or SSHFS. and make sure you have minimal USE flags.
portage cache and distfiles eats up quite a lot space too, you may want to check it.
