Thanks Bill for reminding me of the archives - informative and a lively

This link appeared somewhere in the thread and is still alive - again, very
Beside linux-2.4+/Documentation/filesystems/tmpfs.txt, I've also checked the
libc manual, but here there is very little explanatory information
So I've gone back to mounting tmpfs on /dev/shm as well as on /tmp and /var/
tmp, although somewhere I read that mounting on /var/tmp is not such a good
idea as stuff here is sometimes needed after reboot. I can't imagine this,
why use a temporary directory then?
