Using Ubuntu 12.04 precise pangolin, 32 bit on 6GB partition
I don't have much space left on my HDD, so I installed ubuntu on a partition of just 6GB. Everything was working fine. I decided to have a custom ubuntu of my own, so I downloaded Ubuntu Customization Kit and installed it. On using UCK, I found out that it needs the /tmp folder to have at least 5 GB space, mine has just 200 MB.
I have a few external USB storage drives. Can I use them to increase my /tmp folder space? Please excuse me if my question is a stupid one. This is my first tryst with Ubuntu :)
