Default is it safe to remove those things.

:/var/cache/apt# du -sh *
4.0K apt-file
9.3M archives
21M pkgcache.bin
21M pkgcache.bin.InpgdZ
22M pkgcache.bin.K9JUn6
22M pkgcache.bin.nChibf
21M srcpkgcache.bin


is it safe to remove srcpkgcache.bin pkgcache.bin.nChibf
pkgcache.bin.K9JUn6 pkgcache.bin.InpgdZ and pkgcache.bin

Thanks with best regards,

A clean /var/cache/apt looks like this:

cbell@circe:/var/cache/apt$ ls -lh
total 29M
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Apr 19 21:13 apt-file
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root *68K May *6 07:50 archives
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root *15M May *6 07:50 pkgcache.bin
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root *15M May *6 07:50 srcpkgcache.bin
cbell@circe:/var/cache/apt$

You can delete those oddly named ones. *Specifically:

> 22M * * pkgcache.bin.K9JUn6
> 22M * * pkgcache.bin.nChibf

(Sorry if you get this twice, Lina. I sent the first reply to you
specifically by mistake.)
