Hello, ok just doing new install and am working out best partition layout based on previous installs.

The thing is the past i have always had /tmp on own partition but recently have had to open very large tar files (2gb+) also while doing some Gimp work on large images with /tmp/.Gimp-2.0 temp dir, /tmp has become full.

I could of course set /tmp to be 5gb in size but this seems overkill especially as i have /var/tmp set to 5gb with ccache set to /var/tmp/.ccache

Anyone any thoughts on this? maybe setting /tmp as symlink to /var/tmp or vice verser!

cheers
