Author Topic: empty /tmp at shutdown  (Read 815 times)

a tip i've found on pardususer.de to clean up your system and increase privacy a bit.
- clean everything in /tmp when shutting down the pc: go to file /etc/conf.d/local.stop and add as last line:

rm -Rf /tmp/*

this empties the entire /tmp from all user files and not only the files from the current logged in user.

- for computers with enough ram, there's another trick (not yet tried it myself...): go to /etc/fstab and add:

tmpfs /tmp tmpfs defaults  0 0

now all temporary files will be stored in ram and not on the harddisk.
