Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

My system was originally set up as a server machine, so I made separate partitions for /tmp, /var, /usr, etc. But now I'm using it as a desktop machine, and what I've noticed while watching streaming video from the USA Pro Cycling Challenge is that as I watch, the /tmp partition gets fuller and fuller until it hits 100% and the video locks up.

Is there any way I can make Flash use /var/tmp instead of /tmp? Does it respect the TMPDIR environment variable if I pass that to Firefox?

This is Ubuntu 11.04 and Firefox 6 and Flash 10,3,183,5.

Have you considered not mounting /tmp, and pointing /tmp to /var/tmp as a symlink?
