Re: Moving /tmp to tmpfs makes it useless

True, that's what i was saying.
But if there is not enough memory, it's not only one process that will hang. 
It's everything.
So i think that adding pressure on the RAM, which is absolutely not as 
aboundant as disk space is a mistake, for a generic configuration.
If you know that you aren't going to hit that high memory allocation then.. 
free to use tmpfs.
