how to move location to store temp device and socket files?


Hi,

Is there a way to move the location of temp device and socket files? They all show up in /tmp ... however i'd like them to show up in /tmp/system

They make it very hard to look through /tmp

Thanks!
George

For some packages this is configurable - look through your config-files.
For others this is hardcoded, or is configurable at build-time - you would have to modify the Makefiles or even the source-code to change this location and then build and install them again.
Some packages rely on each other to have their temporary files stored in a certain location - you would need to know which package interoperates with another and change this one too to be able for it to find the data it expects at another place.
Could be a lot of work.
