I manage /tmp, the old fashion way. The way I have always done it. Manually every now and then. Plus a view other places while I'm in the cleaning mood.

I used two excellents Woodsman´s arquives ( deletefiles and cleanup)a long time ago. It was put into rc.local_shutdown.

But I think it is enough!

( cd /tmp && rm -rf -- * 2>/dev/null )
