Move /tmp is too small and runs out of space

Postby dcihon » Sat Nov 24, 2012 4:58 pm

I have searched all over for the answer for this and I can't find it so here I am.
My disk layout looks like this:

Code: Select all

Filesystem                                             1K-blocks     Used Available Use% Mounted on
rootfs                                                  14953656  7919256   6284064  56% /
udev                                                       10240        0     10240   0% /dev
tmpfs                                                     760992      856    760136   1% /run
/dev/disk/by-uuid/0eee66b0-bbc1-4206-a318-fcee7bc264f1  14953656  7919256   6284064  56% /
tmpfs                                                       5120        0      5120   0% /run/lock
tmpfs                                                    1521980     2132   1519848   1% /tmp
tmpfs                                                    1521980      340   1521640   1% /run/shm
/dev/sda6                                              457269468 97464188 336915608  23% /home


I want to move /tmp to my /home partition where I have a lot of space for temporary files.
Seems like when I am downloading an .iso or multiple .iso files I run out of space on /tmp

Thanks for the help in advance

I saw something on a debian mailing list that mentioned something about changing the /tmp folder to ~/tmp. http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2012/05/msg01228.html
Here's another page that might be helpful. http://support.gillhouse.net/Home/tips-and-fixes/howtomoveroot
