My / is full (about 10 GB). My home and data-intensive directories are mounted separately. Does portage accumulate some kind of cache over the time that needs to be deleted? I complied openoffice and disk is full. What directories or files can I remove safely?

Thanks for your help.

Yes, it does. You can safely clean out /var/tmp/portage and /usr/portage/distfiles. If you want to be nice to the mirrors you can try eclean-dist instead of simply wiping the latter.

You can also clear /var/tmp/portage if you've set the portlog variable in /etc/make.conf.
I just recompiled my world target, and there was about 160 MB on logfiles in there :lol:

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