Unter Debian wird tmpwatch ersetzt durch tmpreaper:


"Package: tmpreaper (1.6.5)

Cleans up files in directories based on their age

This package provides a program that can be used to clean out 
temporary-file directories. It recursively searches the directory, 
refusing to chdir() across symlinks, and removes files that haven't 
been accessed in a user-specified amount of time. You can specify a set 
of files to protect from deletion with a shell pattern. It will not 
remove files owned by the process EUID that have the `w' bit clear, 
unless you ask it to, much like `rm -f'. `tmpreaper' will not remove 
symlinks, sockets, fifos, or special files unless given a command line 
option enabling it to. 

WARNING: Please do not run `tmpreaper' on `/'. There are no protections 
against this written into the program, as that would prevent it from 
functioning the way you'd expect it to in a `chroot(8)' environment. 

The daily tmpreaper run can be configured through /etc/tmpreaper.conf ."


P.S.: Wer meint, dass das Paket vorinstalliert sein sollte, bitte ins
