How big is your Manjaro install?

This post was flagged by the community and is temporarily hidden.

/dev/mmcblk0p2   15G   13G  1,1G   93% /

My Manjaro partition. :slight_smile: This includes my /home though.
Waiting on a bigger drive, so I can actually save stuff in my /home. :stuck_out_tongue:

/srv contains mostly shareable multimedia on my system, so you can discard that. Also, all of my btrfs filesystems use level 3 zstd compression. :wink:

Oh, and that’s with 1823 packages, by the way. :slight_smile:

With only 933 packages in my system, i need only about 10GB for the system itself.

Keep in mind that I do cut down uneeded drivers and package, which I do not recommend unless you are certain of what you are doing! :smile:

Thus, for a simple installation, i would recommend 32GB for the system.

I decided to reinstall the OS. Separate /home partition and now have 50gb for /. Root is now a more sensible 6.6gb.
How do i post the output of df -h here? Its been a while since I posted that sort of thing :roll_eyes:

Copy the output and paste it in between three backticks ``` these things

Of that 7G were pacman cache:

$ sudo pacman -Scc

A safer way to remove old package cache files is to remove all packages except for the latest three package versions using paccache :

paccache -rvk3
