Re: /tmp as tmpfs and consequence for imaging software
]] Roger Leigh
somewhat of a tangent, so sorry for hijacking the thread:
| Currently, the size limits for /tmp and other temporary filesystems
| are set in /etc/default/tmpfs.
Can we please stop doing things like that? It makes things harder for
alternative init systems that sysvinit hides this in a random file in
/etc/default rather than just putting it into fstab.
The same goes for RAMTMP, RAMRUN and whatnot.
(Yes, this means we need to handle /etc/fstab better from a maintainer
script when defaults change. Maybe have /etc/fstab.d. ;-)
