virt-builder writes temporary files to /tmp
Last modified: 2015-12-04 05:09:34 EST
Description of problem:
Although virt-builder obeys $TMPDIR, by default (if TMPDIR is not
set) it will try to write temporary files to /tmp. Since the
temporary image files are very large, it ought to write them
to /var/tmp. Otherwise people suffering from tmp-on-tmpfs
brokenness will have problems.
(Reported by adamw on IRC).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libguestfs 1.30 and above.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. With restricted space in /tmp run virt-builder.
which is libguestfs >= 1.31.29.
