    Can I delete these

    Hi guys I just wanted to make sure if it is safe to delete the .rpms in the /var/cache/apt/archives/ ???

    That's where you keep your legacy rpms that you've downloaded. They're used for reinstalling and uninstalling, so if you're not wanting to do either very frequently, it'd probably give you back a crapload of space. Just run an "apt-get clean" and that should do it for you.

    Well you do what I do -- archive your downloads. I just keep them around so I can burn and reinstall or distribute to those without a friend that thee can letch broadband. If you are on broadband or have very easy access to it, vape em and regain your hard disc space.
