Hi, I just upgraded to 10.04, and it seems to be working well. At the very end of the process, it asked me if I wanted to delete my obsolete packages, and I chickened out and said "no". Now I have a truckload of taken space on the root drive, and am wondering if there is an easy way to complete this last step of clearing out obsolete packages now that 10.04 has been fully installed?
Many TIA,
Craig

I guess nobody knows how to do this ;) I found this set of instructions:
http://www.berthon.eu/wiki/foss:ubuntu:aptclean
Which seems to work reasonably well, except that I'm not freeing up as much space as I expected. Looks like I have too much garbage floating around of my own making :) Anyway, hope this helps someone.

Thanks for the link. It's very helpful. It's funny, I visited this morning to find an answer to the same thing, and there was your post! :)
