odd subdirectories in /tmp
 
Hi all,

I was looking for something in my /tmp directory and found a whole bunch of subdirectories with similar names and the same creation time:

Code:

drwx------ 2 root root 4096 Dec 28 20:47 lua3ccu4.tmp/
drwx------ 2 root root 4096 Dec 28 20:47 lua3ccu5.tmp/
drwx------ 2 root root 4096 Dec 28 20:47 lua3ccu6.tmp/
drwx------ 2 root root 4096 Dec 28 20:47 lua3ccu7.tmp/
drwx------ 2 root root 4096 Dec 28 20:47 lua3ccu8.tmp/
drwx------ 2 root root 4096 Dec 28 20:47 lua3ccu9.tmp/
drwx------ 2 root root 4096 Dec 28 20:47 lua3ccua.tmp/
drwx------ 2 root root 4096 Dec 28 20:47 lua3ccub.tmp/
drwx------ 2 root root 4096 Dec 28 20:47 lua3ccuc.tmp/
drwx------ 2 root root 4096 Dec 28 20:47 lua3ccud.tmp/
.

... they're all empty. I don't know anything about these ... are they perhaps something to be concerned about?

Thx,

Glenn

Yip, I see these "lua"-kind of files quite often in /tmp. Probably related to a suspend/resume cycle. As they are empty I always delete them.

Firefox will put files in /tmp sometimes while downloading if you have "Always ask me Where to save" they are random_name.filetype.part so I have many gibberish.exe.part from when I downloaded my GOG games to play in wine, I also have gibberish.iso.part and gibberish.gz.part probably for the same reason. I don't use chromium but maybe it uses rar as its tmp store of downloads? Or it could be a tmp file while some archiving program unrared a file?

Aha!

It's LibreOffice Calc that's doing it. Whew. I ran 'file' on the latest .tmp file and got:

Code:

bash-4.2$ file !$
file lucdpeud.tmp
lucdpeud.tmp: OpenDocument Spreadsheet

Thanks for the tips, everyone. Marking as solved.
