Today I clean squid cache:
/etc/rc.d/squid stop
rm -r /var/cache/squid/*

and starting squid (/etc/rc.d/squid start OR squid -z && /etc/rc.d/squid start). Squid not create new cache directories and file swap.state, because in squid.conf not found description cache_dir, but squid working, but directory /var/cache/squid/ has been clean.

pacman -Qi squid

Причина установки : Явно установлен
Установочный скрипт : Yes
Описание : A full-featured Web proxy cache server.

Steps to reproduce:

I added in /etc/squid.conf: cache_dir ufs /var/cache/squid 100 16 256
And after this i start /etc/rc.d/squid start and it running squid -z before starting squid (see script /etc/rc.d/squid, section start). Cache has been created. I think "cache_dir" definition should be added to squid.conf by default, that people have no problems.

Sorry for my bad english, with respect. =)

Nope this is not a mistake, it's the default squid.conf we ship from upstream. You will have to configure the amount of cache size yourself, since it depends per system how much you would like to use.
