hp2133 auto update


Can updates be sent to smart digital card?

I have 4 GB solid state drive and I have overloaded the tmp folder. I don't want that to happen again.

You can mount the SD-card as the /tmp map. I think, i havent tried this myself, that if you first move the /tmp-map to the SD-card and then, in fstab makes /tmp a new mount-point on the card.
This is only a theory but it should work.

Gosh, that sounds cool. I am afraid to try. I once did a

rm -rf inside /tmp

I felt like I was tempting fate. I don't even know what rm -rf means.

The HP 2133 worked after that though and it's a good thing because I would have sent it back and requested a refund.

Thanks for the help all the way from Europe no less

Mike
