How do you make /tmp buffer larger?
I have read that if /tmp is too small, videos choke, and other problems occur.
On my machine, one of the problems was that I couldn't download things because /tmp got full and when I went in to delete some tmp files, I wrecked the system...(not too intuitive I guess).
So this time around, how can I increase the size of /tmp, as well as have it emptied on startup?
I don't want to have it emptied on shutdown, because if I get a crash, the /tmp will still be full...shutdown just doesn't seem to be a reliable place to put essential housekeeping tasks.
any ideas or comments?
