where is "tmpfs", with /dev/shm ?
Novell Linux Desktop 9 System Monitor shows a device named tmpfs in the directory /dev/shm. Under type it says tmpfs 125 MB with 8 K used.
I'm assuming this is a temporary file system. How can I access this "device" ? How can I see what's in it ? Should I be concerned about it's size at some point in the future ? Can it be emptied without causing harm ?
This just showed up about 2 days ago after I had burnt a couple CD's. At least I don't recall seeing it before then. It does not show as a device when I look at the partitions.
