 Remove forgotten packages. If you have popularity-contest installed, you 
can use popcon-largest-unused to list the packages you do not use that 
occupy the most space. You can also use deborphan or debfoster to find 
obsolete packages (see Section 4.11, “Obsolete packages” ). Alternatively 
you can start aptitude in “visual mode” and find obsolete packages under 
“Obsolete and Locally Created Packages”.
