I'm running linux and Mac on a 4 GB harddrive. The linux partition

space. Any suggestions as to where to start?
The deborphan package is useful for finding packages, especially
libraries, that can be removed because nothing depends on them. I
usually use "deborphan --guess-all". It's an iterative process:
after you remove some, run it again because there may be more that are
now no longer needed.
It will remove all your developpment libraries though, which you may
need if you are wanting to do developpment.
There is also a script or something to remove all the documentations, i
think, have seen it mentioned in one of the debian lists the last month
