tmpfs too small?

chris hermansen
Good people,

I am running Mubox on a cubox-i4.  A great music player, really.

One small problem I have... The machine never seems to need to be rebooted, but every so often when I login to apply updates I start getting messages about write errors.  I think this happens when tmpfs has filled up.

My cubox-i4 has a nice big class 10 micro SSD.  df -k reports

Filesystem      1K-blocks      Used  Available Use% Mounted on
rootfs           15312852    545416   13973196   4% /
/dev/root        15312852    545416   13973196   4% /
devtmpfs          1035508         0    1035508   0% /dev
tmpfs              207136       304     206832   1% /run
tmpfs                5120         0       5120   0% /run/lock
tmpfs             1035672         0    1035672   0% /run/shm
tmpfs             4194304      2636    4191668   1% /tmp
tmpfs             4194304      2636    4191668   1% /var/log
tmpfs             4194304      2636    4191668   1% /var/tmp
tmpfs             4194304      2636    4191668   1% /var/lib/mpd
tmpfs             4194304      2636    4191668   1% /var/lib/alsa
/dev/sda1      1922729832 168654892 1656382832  10% /esata/hdd0


Would it be reasonable to allocate a few more Gb of that unused space in /dev/root to tmpfs?

If so, is there a voyage-specific guide on this topic?

If I power down the cubox and extract the SSD, and put it in a carrier in an Ubutu machine, can I just change partition sizes?

Thanks!

Hi Chris,

Please show me the write error when you see it.  The tmpfs only 1% as you shown.

Re: tmpfs too small?

OK based on past experience it may be a month or so but I will note it.
