Hello. I have compiled Sage from source(it took 2 days o_O). sage directory is now 4.5G. Can i clean it up so that it takes up less disk space, saving it's functionality? How?

There are a couple of make targets for this. From $SAGE_ROOT You can run:

> make micro_release  # strips binaries and library files and removes build artifacts

If you want to do less than that, you can try:

> make clean   # will remove spkg build artifacts

If you don't want local documentation, you can remove it also:

> make doc-clean   # removes local documentation

Don't use the distclean make target because that deletes all results of compilation (so Sage won't work anymore).

thx, but make micro_release died with SIGSEGV, rendering sage inoperative.
