Ok, but I do not want to disable any of those files, AFAIK.

Yes you do.

You've said a number of times that you don't know where/why /tmp is being created as a regular directory on boot and don't want it to hapen.

No, not /tmp, but /media. And it was hapening because I misunderstood what this line I myself wrote does:

d /media 0755 root root 10d

And RTFM only applies if you know what to look for already.

Again, we've told you a number of times and and I've said many, many times "use apropos".

I have and I do. Why don't you think I did not?

cer@Telcontar:~> apropos tmpfs
tmpfs: nothing appropriate.

But this is daunting:

cer@Telcontar:~> apropos systemd | wc -l

I did look at documentation and examples, but got it wrong; so I came and asked here instead, where there are humans that may already know the answer. I'm helping people all the time, so I see nothing wrong in being helped for once, instead of the other way round ;-)

Google is wonderful if you are lucky or you have a good idea what to look for.

Mostly because I never get it right the first time, or the second, or the third. I keep trying. With different words; With different word orders, Sometimes settling it to exclude stuff.

Its not luck; its persistence.

My friends know that I'm bad at using google :-)

I was once doing some training course; most of them were younger than me. When the teacher asked something, I thought about it. Those kids simply wrote the whole question on google - and amazingly, they got the answer quite often.
