Re: [opensuse-factory] my /tmp was full

Hello,

On Oct 22 01:16 Cristian Rodríguez wrote (excerpt):
the second snippet will turn /tmp into an in-memory filesystem,
so ensure you do not write huge files there if you are short of RAM!,
be aware some buggy apps may still do that..(big files should go to
/var/tmp instead! )

Applications that work in compliance with FHS can write
as much as they like to /tmp/.
Applications that work in compliance with FHS and do not want
their temporary stuff to be preserved between system reboots
cannot use /var/tmp/.
See
https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Tmp_on_tmpfs#.2Ftmp.2F_versus_.2Fvar.2Ftmp.2F

I guess the above definition of "buggy apps" comes from systemd's
way how the world has to behave to suffice their point of view.
