I made a /tmp parition alongside partitions for / /home /root /var and /boot. It was a mistake to make a partition to tmp/. Is there a way for tmp/ to use RAM instead of the designated space I made on the SSD?
/etc/fstab comment out any line that might mount your separate /tmp partition on your hard drive. You then can have
/tmp in RAM with the following line in
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime 0 0
After this, you can remove the dedicated /tmp partition on your drive using a partition editor or use it for something else.
