Lorax runs out of disk on /tmp when building images when it should use /var/tmp
Last modified: 2013-02-04 12:51:51 EST
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.
Are you using pungi to do the composes?
