RE: Ramdisk on Etrax

> Why not use the existing /tmp/ directory which is a ramdisk?

The mount point for the tmpfs is actually the /var directory and /tmp is a symlink to /var/tmp (if you do it the other way around the sticky bit on /tmp will affect the entire /var directory).

I recommend using tmpfs before ramfs since you can use mount options to adjust parameters (like maximum size) on a tmpfs.
