i have pc linux installed on a 160GB hard drive and it does work but i am concerned about storage space reguarding packages being stored locally on the hard drive ?
Well, installed packages will
take up space ...
But if you are concerned about the rpms being archived in /var/cache/apt/archives
, you should just set up Synaptic to delete downloaded packages after installation. (Settings > Preferences > Files > Delete downloaded packages after installation.)
Or you could even delete those archived rpms manually that you don't wish to keep as backups.
Feed the trolls!
They need it!
