Slackware-13.1-Hacks-Emptying tmp

Posted 01-01-2011 at 11:09 PM by arniekat

# This will empty the /tmp folder when you shutdown or
# reboot the machine
# Add this line to /etc/rc.d/rc.6

echo "Emptying /tmp"
rm /tmp/* -rf &1>2 > /dev/null

The /dev/null part gets rid of any output/error codes.

I placed it between the following sections in /etc/rc.d/rc.6

ATI vs NVIDIA proprietary drivers for Linux.
