Extending /tmp

How do I make my /tmp file 400mb? It's currently 200mb.

Well, it all depends on how you have your partitions and filesystem setup. More details get better replies and or responses.

According to the results you've listed, I will assume you have 3 partitions set up:

/dev/hda1 = /boot
/dev/hda2 = swap
/dev/hda3 = /

The /tmp directory exists under / unless you have specifically assigned it to its own partition, therefore, no action is needed to give it more space. -- J.W.
