TMP not clearing

Post#1 by Adam.Milani » 27 Nov 2016, 21:59

Hey guys
Absolute newbie here. after installing a couple of modules, the tmp does not seem to be clearing on its own (its been about 5 days).
Do i need to go in and clear manually or is there a command i need to use to configure it.
Thank you

hi, welcome to porteus :)
afaik, /tmp is cleared on shutdown, or more accurately, not saved to /changes or whathaveyou..
also afaik, theres no inbuilt process that does it periodicly...
so, yes, you can do it manually or as a quick interweb search tells me: set up a cron job to do it periodicly.
just be careful not to delete something that not being used..(usm downloads should be fine)
sorry that this answer is incomplete.. hopefully someone with more knowledge can improve on it ;)
