Description Tim Flink 2012-08-21 16:55:15 EDT
When building an image with lorax, it makes a temporary directory in /tmp to do work. With the new tmpfs feature in Fedora 18, the available disk space in /tmp is limited and not enough for image creation.

According to the tmp-on-tmpfs feature, anything needing large amounts of disk space in /tmp should use /var/tmp instead of /tmp

This issue exists in lorax-18.14-1.fc18 which is current at this time.
