I ran out of space while emerging (which took me longer to figure out than it should have :oops:) and can't figure out where it went. I've cleaned out /usr/portage/distfiles/ but there wasn't much in there, so it didn't help a whole lot. The emerge's didnt finish, and I actually had taken out some large packages (firefox and x-org specifically) that were blocking other packages and haven't put them back in, yet I have 400 mb less then before I started. Where did it go? Are there other directories like distfiles/ I can clean out?
[edit]I also had updated portage before starting the emerge [/edit]

790 Mb, thanks! Out of curiosity, what exactly is this temp files for? compiles?
[edit] Can I safely delete the sub directories in /var/tmp/portage/ ? [/edit]

You can delete those subdirectories, and yup, it's used during emergeing packages for compiles.

You might also wanna look into /usr/src, where the kernel sources are stored. If you don't need those sources, you can unmerge them to save space.

I just cleaned mine out. 870MB! Why is this not cleaned automatically by portage after emerge has finished?

Moved from Poratage & Programming in favour of the FAQ SA1: Running out of diskspace
