I've configured my machine with a very large tmpfs:
ac131313@nettle$ df -k /tmp
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
mfs:123 989776 35 940252 0% /tmp
I've twice on recent occasions found that my machine hung when unpacking
a number of large (~100mb) tar balls into this tmpfs.
The machine is a G4 Ti with 256mb of ram running a very new kernel.
Has anyone else noticed this?
