    Default Root partition almost full after upgrades


    After having completed upgrading KDE 4.1.3 on 11.1 from the openSUSE
    build service repository, I noticed that my root partition is now
    considerably bigger than it probably should be. In fact, it's nearly
    full.

    I'm not sure if the downloaded packages aren't being removed after
    installation, or what's going on I couldn't find information on where
    the packages are stored temporarily, otherwise I would have checked
    myself. Any help would be most appreciated.

    I'm not sure if this is the most appropriate place for this post or
    not, but I couldn't think of a better place.

    Thanks in advance.

    These days they are removed after install by default.

    You have to see which directories are using up the space. Maybe log
    files in /var/log? Maybe trash folders? du is your friend.
