/var/cache/yum filling up

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It seems there are already some bugs logged (and closed) regarding this issue. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=632391 and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=628963

In the meantime however, if you want to safely clear up the useless data in /var/cache/yum, you can just run the following command:

yum clean all

For me it went from 8Gb of useless sqlite files to none in 2 seconds.
