Yes, I did this at first. But an almost full tmpfs of 512M isn't very
useful when I need to start another UML server. I prefer a per UML quota
for /tmp. Is maybe a fixed amount of RAM for /tmp (per UML) of e.g. 64M
the suggested method? If it's full right away, doesn't this mean that
more is needed?
It's rather a problem when I asign 1.5 GB to UML's, 750 M is used for
tmpfs and only a total of 750M is really given to the UML kernels as a
So, my question comes down to: Is a 16MB /tmp enough for UML? Or does it
