hi, my gentoo is now about 1 1/2 years old and it has grown...
i've always kept it up to date, sometimes installed new stuff, unmerged other stupp, run depclean
it seems that its always gettin bigger (just the system cause i store no private files on /)
so how can i clean it out a little bit?
erase temporary files or files i dont need need any more, deinstall/delete programs i never use/nothing depends on?
u know what i mean?
thnks

Delete the contents of /usr/portage/distfiles and /var/tmp/portage. I wipe all of /tmp too on each boot. There are many posts on these forums about such things.
