Re: .aptitude/config and Automatic Cache Deletion

Clean-Installed Defaults to on. When turned on the autoclean
feature will remove any packages which can no longer be
downloaded from the cache. If turned off then packages that
are locally installed are also excluded from cleaning - but
note that APT provides no direct means to reinstall them.
autoclean Removes any cached packages which can no longer be
downloaded. This allows you to prevent a cache from growing out
of control over time without completely emptying it.
'Autoclean' doesn't seem to be quite what I used in the past. My
previous setup removed *all* files from the cache once installed ... I
*want* to "completely empty it".
Thanks for the prompt reply!
