This one is configurable in /etc/rc.conf, take a look at /etc/defaults/rc.conf for default settings and explanations: | clear_tmp_enable="NO" # Clear /tmp at startup. | clear_tmp_X="YES" # Clear and recreate X11-related directories in /tmp OTOH you can configure /tmp/ as memory file system (which is clear with every reboot cause of its nature) using settings like | tmpmfs="YES" | tmpsize="128m" | tmpmfs_flags="-S" in /etc/rc.conf (in this example 128 MB of /tmp without soft-updates). -cs _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
