howdy, i have a chronic lack of HD space problem, and i was wondering if there is any way to free some cached files from portage. i noticed that fetched packages get stored in /usr/portage/distfiles even after the app is merged. is there a command to delete these files, or would getting rid of them break portage in some way...? any other HD space saver tips would be much appreciated aswell. thanks.

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads, please see this FAQ: SA1: Running out of disk space.
