#688 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Move tmp files to a subdir of tmp

Reported by: wildintellect Owned by: kalxas
Priority: major Milestone: OSGeoLive7.9
Component: OSGeoLive Keywords: 7.0
Cc: live-demo@…


I'd like to propose that we put all tmp file in a subdir of /tmp. Something like osgeolive

The reason is that if we implement this I can actually mount a second virtual machine disk to /tmp/osgeolive and store all the downloaded files independent of any build. I could do it that way now, but I'd also get all the other junk that's in the tmp.

That means it will take less time to compress the builds for release, there is no need to copy the cached files on and off each build, and the build can work with or without the pre-cached files.

Summary: Move tmp files to a subdir of tmpKeep tmp files outside of chroot to reuse

I think that with chroot method we could just link /tmp to a directory outside of chroot and this way keep the files in the host machine to reuse for every build.

unless there is objection, work will begin on this soon.

I put the original summary back into place. We should do both.

Since we are moving towards deb packaging of everything, this is not going to be implemented.
