Re: Avoiding to mount /run/lock

Why do you want to disable /run/lock? What do you want to accomplish by
doing so? It is a 5MB tmpfs, what could be wrong with it?

I run a samba server that is heavily used. It currently uses 46MB in /run/lock. When the partition is full all samba service dies.
I dont see any real advantage in having an extra tmpfs partition - if it is not a separate mount point I never run into any issues.
Currently I unmount the partition after boot but  I guess thats not an optimal solution.
