:(

i'm a gentoo newbie - i emerged openoffice, and it crashed during the build as i ran out of space on the drive. i've tried emerge --clean, and emerge --depclean and emerge --prune, as well as emerge --unmerge openoffice, but none of them do anything.

i need to scrub out all the data which got half compiled, I need some hdd space back!

how can I get rid of the rubbish the openoffice ebuild created - about 1.5gb by my calculations!

cheers!

Delete all the data in /var/tmp/portage/ That's where all the half-compiled stuff is stored.

Please see the FAQ SA1: Running out of diskspace
