I read in there that it's preferred to set-up separate partitions
mount points such as /tmp, /var/tmp, & /home. I tried to do this
last debian install I did for my firewall. I'm preparing to re-do
machine for Etch (along with some hardware upgrades), but I ran into a
problem when trying to do this. I don't remember the exact
the problem I think revolved around not being able to properly boot-up
since the /tmp and/or the /var/tmp where needed during the boot,
being mounted yet. Anyone experienced this problem before and/or have
an suggestion on how to get around this problem?
/usr, /var and /tmp and never had a problem with this setup. What is the
exact problem you have?
