http://chakra-project.org – Hello everyone ,I open this topic because I have faced a critical problem with /tmp several times. my /tmp was full, so any program that needed to write a temporary file could not be executed. (even bash with bash-completion)the problem is that /tmp is a temporary file system monted at boot time with /etc/fstab :tmpfs /tmp tmpfs nodev,nosuid 0 0And the free space available in /tmp is determined at mount time, and it is half of the RAM.in my case, I have 4G of RAM so /tmp has 2G of free space.but now, if you use some bundles like firefox of chrome, they will go to /tmp/c (HowTos)
