Tmpfs Support?

Tmpfs Support?

Post by Cy Schubert - BCSC Open Systems Gro » Mon, 24 Jul 1995 04:00:00

Is there a driver that will support a tmpfs filesystem?  Reserving N megs of
nonswapable ram for a ramdisk seems rather wasteful.

1. tmpfs: [ID 610955 kern.warning] WARNING: tmp_memalloc: tmpfs over memory limit

Is there some kind of memory limit setting in /etc/system or
something?  This is the error I'm getting when my /tmp gets over about
70% full.  I've just never heard of this before, could someone explain
please.  Below is my vfstab if it matters at all...
