Disable Clearing Apt-get Cache at Boot Time
From MEPIS Documentation Wiki
Reason: If you don't want to lose the .deb files that you downloaded with apt-get (by default those files are deleted at boot time)
In MEPIS 6.0, go to OS Center -> System Tweaks. Uncheck "Clear packages cache at boot" and click "Apply". In 6.5, go to System --> MEPIS --> MEPIS System Assistant, supply root password, then uncheck "Clear packages cache at boot" and click OK.
