I've seen anywhere from about 5 to 15 meg, depending on how many things I have installed (or upgraded) since I last cleaned it.

What was the point of the .games folder anyways? Did Nokia expect it to be used or something?

Could you expand some more on your method Kroll? just the other day I had to do a whole clean up because I had NO space. Cleaned out the locals and rebooted, and got some space back. I'm interested in your method. If I could simply stay away from using the flash unless it's needed, that would rock.

Thing is that after you install some application just move it from /usr/share/ to /media/mmc2/usr/share and link it. At least 80% of app will be moved to mmc2 and you have saved space.

Link it using emelFM2. I guess I was confused about being able to just move the app from /usr/share/ to /mediammc2/usr/share and link it, with out having to do anything special. Just that simple? I LOVE when things are easy ^_^. Don't worry, if I break it, I understand I'm the one that broke it.

Yep, it is very easy. Just use emelfm2 to link it.
Okey, about mounting and umounting mmc2. Just make two partitions: first one with swap and /usr/share and /home/user and second - your data. Then you will be able to umount your partition with data when ever you want, even swap is in use.

So, after a typo accidentally deleted all of /usr/share/locale/* I'm somewhat concerned. Is there any way someone could send me the English locale files? i'll happily pass on an email address if anyone is interested...

(Oops.)

Nevermind. I realized I could mount another partition and steal the files from there. I'm happy again.
