    The filesystem hierarchy standard is very clear about this:

    Still, it's not meant to be.
    Moreover /var/run and /var/lock are already redirected to tmpfs by default, so placing them in fstab is redundant.

    I am curious as to why /run/lock and /run/shm are set up as tmpfs when /run already is tmpfs? It seems redundant.

    In my day, we had outdoors in which to run, play, and socialise. Now we have computers to do those.
