It should actually be easier to go to runlevel 1 and remove everything
in /tmp. It's very unlikely that there are any processes left that need
/tmp in runlevel 1.
You should investigate, why you /tmp in filling up rapidly. Maybe this
command helps to find the file/directory, that consumes most of the disk
du -sm * | sort -n
du -sm .??* | sort -n (for all hidden files and directories)
Hi, Boris. Thanks for the input. I was a bit worried, but it seems that I
mis-read the logwatch file. It wasn't anywhere near full, though there were
some old print jobs that needed cleaning out.
