/var/run/user


Hello,

I am using slackware64-current. This directory appeared recently.
It seems to store temporary files used by user 1000, that were previoulsly stored in /tmp. I have put /tmp in tmpfs (to spare my SSD, and because I have enough RAM). Is there a way to put also /var/run/user in tmpfs ?

I don't think it's 'real'!!! (I think it's your RAM!!!, but others will explain better)

Do you get this: (?)
Code:
$ ls -ld /var/run
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 Feb  9 09:46 /var/run -> /run

it's mounted as tmpfs already
Code:
$ grep tmpfs /proc/mounts | grep user
none /var/run/user/1000 tmpfs rw,relatime,size=102400k,mode=700,uid=1000 0 0
