    Question How and what to delete in /tmp ?

    Hi!
    I put /tmp in its own partition. Its now over 90% full.

    Is it so that everything under /tmp can be deleted? Or will the system always make space when nessesary?
    As normal user its impossible to delete anything in /tmp, so do i need root-access or is there an easier way to clean up tmp-files?

    Root owned files and folders cannot be deleted by standard user.

    Just launch yast / system / sysconfig editor and navigate to "system/cron".
    There are some variables related to /tmp behavior you can easily tweak from
    here.

    THT.
