Description Ohad Basan 2014-02-16 09:20:07 UTC
Description of problem:

image-uploader extracts the image to a temporary dir which is usually /tmp
since this directory is traditionally small and the image files are big
it does not always fit.
I suggest adding a flag to enable the user to the set this directory

Comment 1 Itamar Heim 2014-02-17 03:25:56 UTC
it is available via the environment variable iiuc

Comment 4 Sandro Bonazzola 2014-03-03 08:16:06 UTC
Ohad, you can set temp dir using

 TMPDIR=/path/to/your/directory rhevm-image-uploader ...

I think that it's enough. Please reopen if a new flag for setting the temp dir is really needed
