No need to edit the script. It gives you the solution: Use the '-s
/path/to/dir' option.
So in your case e.g. `makeSUSEdvd -s temp_dir`. This will put the
temporary stuff in ./temp_dir instead of in /tmp.

Strange. That normaly only happens when the script stops for whatever
reason. TEMP_DIR is a mounted system. to be sure, see that nothing else is
mounted that should not be mounted.

Most likely because the first run failed and was aborted before
