hi,
after an emerge -e world, used disk space i 2gb greater than before. I think that something goes wrong, this is the output of du -sh /*

Code:

7.6M    /bin
2.2M    /boot
252K    /dev
7.1M    /etc
306M    /home
8.2M    /lib
0       /media
13G     /mnt
149M    /opt
898M    /proc
2.2M    /root
7.1M    /sbin
0       /sys
740M    /tmp
2.9G    /usr
4.1G    /var


4.1GB on /var is normal? which directory can i trash to save disk space?

You can get rid of /var/tmp/portage/*, and /usr/portage/distfiles/* safely

Ausmusj1 is right. These two directories tend to fill up quickly, especially after you do emerge [OPTIONS] world commands. You can set up cron jobs to empty these directories out periodically, just make sure that this won't be done while you're trying to emerge something.
