    Default Removing old packages


    Hello,
    I would like to ask you what happens with old packages after they've
    been automatically updated? I just noticed that my root partition space
    shrunk very much lately.
    Thank you in advance

    Do you mean, what happens with packages after they are installed?
    => I think they are deleted, but i don't know that exactly.

    I've just checked my zypper-cache-folder -/var/cache/zypp/-.
    It's 36,6 MB, how big is yours?

    You can tidy up -/tmp-, if it has become very big.

    My /var/cache/zypp folder is 47MB, I'm asking about updated packages
    after autoupdate that downloaded new versions and new dependencies. For
    instance, I had the Linux kernel 2.6.25 and now I have Linux kernel
    2.6.27 installed but I see references and folders that contain 2.6.25. I
    installed kernel-sources and now I see sources for both kernels, I
    assume they are not deleted. Same goes for libraries and other
    applications.
    How can I remove the old things?

    I always wondered the same thing. I have also noticed that even after a
    uninstall with yast some files are left behind.
