I know this has been asked before, but I can't find an answer that also pertains to this /tmp message. I have 12.04 LTS on a Toshiba laptop, as well as Windows 7. I really just started to dig into Ubuntu on here, and so I barely have anything on the system. At this point I use Ubuntu for XBMC streaming, and anything VPN related.
For the past few months everything was fine. Last week I started to theme it with icons and borders.... that's the only thing I've done. Shortly after, I get this message regarding /tmp drive. I just wait the 5 seconds and let it boot, but I'm curious what's going on. What I could have done to make this happen now. After it boots, everything works fine. Everything shows healthy in G parted. I see this question asked a dozen times, but a dozen different answers in search. It would be great to not only fix it, but figure out how it happened. Thanks
EDIT: I see on Ubuntu Forums someone tried
mount -o remount, rw / Can I try that now, or would I have to restart, press M for manual, then type command in terminal?
2ND EDIT: Here's what I get after
mike@Mike-Ubuntu12:~$ cat /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0 # / was on /dev/sda5 during installation UUID=71d51bdc-9bd4-4897-85fb-c08d68620d4b / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 # swap was on /dev/sda6 during installation UUID=58a3a8ae-eb46-459c-9464-47cfa932b498 none swap sw 0 0
ALSO, I get this TMP message sporadically. I booted my computer twice today and have not gotten this message (so I don't know if the fstab even helps) But I got the message yesterday.
fstab in Gedit
