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.

Interesting…my zypper.log says it’s 12.3 GiB
