A name would be nice. Kdar comes with SuSE but I don't know if it is preinstalled.
Or are you referring to YaST?
If you are using the YaST2 backup program, under the backup options -> expert options, you can select a different location for temporary files. One other thing that might help is if you fragment the backup archive into chunks (This is a guess).
Is the backup successful? If so, determine which files were created in /tmp, by looking at the names and when they were created and delete them.
I looked in the sysconfig editor and didn't see an option dealing with regular backups.
Perhaps, if future backups are incremental, there will be less to be backed up and you won't have the problem.
