It is not the files on /var/log/ taking up space but
following files on /var/tmp/

# ls -lh
total 192544

I have no idea what they are and when they were

After rebooting the PC, Gnome revived.  Still have
some minor problems, such as on KDE desktop Konsole
window, selected fonts unable to save (saving settings
having no function)

'portsclean' is an utility of 'portupgrade'.  Very
powerful taking about 5 minute to complete on my slow
system.  Now it got lost.  I think I have to reinstall

Still having problem.  Please see above.

Tks again for your advice.
