Thank you Joey Hess and Javier Vasquez for answering my query but I
wish some examples would have been given alongwith it.
How do I write values of TMPFS_SIZE and TMP_SIZE
This is what it looks like atm :-
# TMPFS_SIZE: maximum size for all tmpfs filesystems if no specific
# size is provided. If no value is provided here, the kernel default
# will be used.
# TMP_SIZE: maximum size of /tmp
# No default size.
Now my questions are :-
a. From where would TMPFS_Size be used ? Would it take from the space
allocated from / (which has enough empty space) or does it take from
/home. Note that I have two partitions / , /home and of course swap is
also good around 4 GB.
$ free -h
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 2.0G 1.8G 134M 0B 72M 840M
-/+ buffers/cache: 954M 1.0G
Swap: 4.6G 212M 4.4G
b. The second question is how do I phrase the two ?
tmpfs is given as 20% . 20% is default for what and from where ?
c. What do I write at TMP_SIZE= if I want to say 900 MiB or 1 GiB .
Looking forward for help and advice.
