Default Fwd: how to increase space for tmpfs /tmp

This is for Stan Hoeppner, and concerns the tmpfs /tmp thread. People who are annoyed please accept my heartfelt apology. I really don't like the attention that I am drawing to myself by this.q

Stan,

Sorry for this. I'm doing email in my ISP's webmail interface now and don't have access to the neat addressing options of the debian-user list.

Thanks.

That's not actually what I said. There is a subtle but distinct difference:

Me: "Your du isn't reflecting reality of what's
on disk."

"Your du" implies both the exact command line w/switches you're
executing and du itself, not just du. Did you ever drop caches as I
recommended? Sometimes the in memory inode and extent maps don't match
what's on disk. So it's possible df isn't reporting used blocks
correctly, which is why I instructed you to drop caches, 'least I think
I did.

$ echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

then run df and du.

Keep in mind I don't have knowledge of what all you've done to those
filesystems and when, what may have gone wrong, if anything, etc.
Neither does anyone else here but you. So it may take a while to figure
out what the problem is.
