temp directories /home/tmp /tmp several questions.
Does this effect us suse 7.2 pro users?

Second ,

I used to have a seperate /tmp partition but suse needed more space, and I
wasn't ready to pop another 2G window partition to give it between 500M and
1G for a freaking temp directory. What is the benefit to having a seperate
partition for the /tmp directory

Note: I am not talking about /home/usr/tmp but /tmp and I am thinking it
would need to be 1.0G right?

my old partitions prior to suse were (at the time I had 128MB of ram) :
/dev/hdc15 3.2G 1.5G 1.6G 48% /
none 0 0 0 - /proc
/dev/hdc3 63M 2.8M 59M 5% /boot
none 0 0 0 - /dev/pts
/dev/hdc14 242M 3.3M 226M 1% /home
/dev/hda1 2.0G 584M 1.4G 29% /mnt/win_c
/dev/hdc1 2.0G 416k 2.0G 0% /mnt/win_c2
/dev/hda5 2.0G 64k 2.0G 0% /mnt/win_d
/dev/hdc5 2.0G 64k 2.0G 0% /mnt/win_d2
/dev/hda6 2.0G 64k 2.0G 0% /mnt/win_e
/dev/hdc6 2.0G 64k 2.0G 0% /mnt/win_e2
/dev/hda7 2.0G 64k 2.0G 0% /mnt/win_f
/dev/hdc7 1.8G 64k 1.8G 0% /mnt/win_f2
/dev/hdc8 2.0G 64k 2.0G 0% /mnt/win_g
/dev/hdc9 2.0G 64k 2.0G 0% /mnt/win_h
/dev/hdc10 2.0G 64k 2.0G 0% /mnt/win_i
/dev/hdc13 242M 4.0M 255M 2% /root
/dev/hdc11 241M 17k 228M 0% /tmp


Current setup is suse and (512MB ram) :
/dev/hdc12 7.0G 5.8G 888M 87% /
proc 0 0 0 - /proc
devpts 0 0 0 - /dev/pts
/dev/hdc3 65M 2.4M 59M 4% /boot
/dev/hdc10 688M 355M 299M 55% /home
/dev/hdc11 242M 7.1M 222M 4% /root
shmfs 665M 0 664M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda1 2.0G 2.0G 73M 97% /windows/C
/dev/hda5 2.0G 1.4G 639M 69% /windows/D
/dev/hda6 2.0G 1.7G 391M 81% /windows/E
/dev/hda7 1.8G 1.8G 86M 96% /windows/F
/dev/hdc1 2.0G 619M 1.3G 31% /windows/G
/dev/hdc5 2.0G 1.4G 649M 69% /windows/H
/dev/hdc6 2.0G 1.9G 156M 93% /windows/I
/dev/hdc7 2.0G 93M 1.9G 5% /windows/J
/dev/hdc8 2.0G 567M 1.4G 28% /windows/K


also what is shmfs? is that swap?
