  • Linux Lite: 4.6 64bit

  • CPU: Intel Pentium [email protected] (2cores) on an Asus X71Q

  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel GM45 Express Chipset

  • Kernel: 4.x

In continuing to try and learn more about how the LL file system (and linux generally) is organized, could someone tell me where the downloaded *.deb packages are stored, as well as the linux kernel packages, on the LL file system, in my case LL3.8 ?

Many thanks for any help with this

2017 - Raspberry pi 3B (4cores) ~ [email protected] - LibreElec, used for upgrading our Samsung TV (excellent for the task)  
2012 - Lenovo G580 2689 (2cores; 4threads] ~ [email protected] - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working smoothly)
2011 - Samsung NP-N145 Plus (1core; 2threads) ~ Intel Atom [email protected] - LL 3.8 32-bit (64-bit too 'laggy')
2008 - Asus X71Q (2cores) ~ Intel [email protected] - LL4.6/Win8.1 dual-boot, LL works fine with kernel 4.15
2007 - Dell Latitude D630 (2cores) ~ Intel [email protected] - LL4.6, works well with kernel 4.4; 4.15 doesn't work

Had a look at the above location, but only some packages listed, i.e.
firefox, flashplugin, gir1.2, libn*, libpcap, libsmbclient, libsnapd, libssh, libwbclient, network manager, samba packages.

Can't see Kernel packages or others.

@m654321  Your kernel packages will be named linux-image-somenumber ....
as to not many packages there, when did you last do "sudo apt autoremove" as that actually removes cached packages, saving space on the system.

Hope this helps :)

Yes, i run 'autoremove' regularly, so I guess that explains why there isn't much in there right now .
Many thanks for pointing that out.

For kernel packages check under
Code: [Select]
ls /lib/modules
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)

Kernel packages are stored there along with all other packages, they are not in a separate location. If there are none there, then your last clean cleared them out.

@Jerry  Thanks for the reminder, forgot about clean :)

@m654321  using sudo apt-get and one of the following will clean out the cached packages:

Code: [Select]
  autoremove - Remove all unused packages automatically
  clean - Erase downloaded archive files
  autoclean - Erase old downloaded archive files

info from "apt-get --help"

Hope this helps :)
