/var/cache tmpfs on live media w/ persistence
Last modified: 2008-07-16 12:03:07 EDT
Description of problem:
I would like to see /var/cache mounted as a tmpdir when using Live USB key with
persistence. A 'yum update' will write data twice (consuming extra persistence
space and extra USB write cycles), first into /var/cache/yum, and later as RPM
writes out the files.
(Firefox cache should probably also be tmpfs/ramfs for same reason, but may be
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
whatever was in Fedora 9
Should probably also handle /tmp and /var/tmp the same way really.
Have a couple of things that could work -- will try them out over a little bit
and commit something definitely for F10
