Description Christopher Blizzard 2007-04-02 20:07:17 UTC
Description of problem:

On OLPC we need to limit the size of the tmpfs that everything is mounted on. 
We have no backing store so if you download something large into /tmp it will
eat all the available memory and OOM will start eating things.

Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against "devel", not against test1/2/3. This

Options added in CVS, will be in 8.52-1.

# Options to use for temporary mount
