.xsession-errors occupying 4.7Gb
I just thought I'd mention this here for those who are not aware of it.
My disk usage has seemed to grown the last year or so and I havn't been
able to understand what it is that takes so much space. Today I was
playing around with 'du' and couldn't get the numbers to add up. Then I
saw that the file ~/.xsessions-errors had grown to a huge size, about 4.7
Gigabytes. When I finally got rid of it I freed about half the size of my
root partition. :-)
Because this file is used by countless X applications it can't be deleted
properly. What seems to work is this:
cat /dev/null > ~/.xsession-errors
Now I have this in a cron script run every night.
So if you are having problems with disk space, check out this file.
