Re: disk full during pacman - cleanup?

If /var is not on a separate partition you can clear the package cache - pacman's man page explains how

I think that 7 GB is enough to install gnome 3 :-)

Re: disk full during pacman - cleanup?

I Have a fresh install  20G /   and a 25G /home  (no separate /boot or /var).
With gnome 3, xfce4.8. Libre Office, Gimp, base, and base-devel packages installed
total space on root is 3.1G

You can install localepurge and remove unwanted locales, clear /tmp
and unwanted fonts, logs etc.
pacman -Scc will clear the pacman cache but only do this if you are certain
you dont need to downgrade any packages:
