    /dev/sda2             20641788  19587920      5228 100% /
    devtmpfs               1026376       288   1026088   1% /dev
    tmpfs                  1027932         4   1027928   1% /dev/shm
    /dev/sda3            284948380 202593252  67880564  75% /home

    Taken from this link: clean up disk space in SuSE linux

    Look in YaST2.
    Click on System -> /etc/sysconfig Editor. Click on Search and enter "TMP". There are several options such as the MAX_DAYS_IN_TMP or CLEAR_TMP_DIRS_AT_BOOTUP which allow you to clear out /tmp in a cron job clearing out old tmp files or to clear out /tmp when you boot up.

    Or you can edit /etc/sysconfig/cron directly. You can also add /var/tmp to the list of directories to clear out.

    Also check your log rotation setup; /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf. This file configures log rotation and how many backups to retain.

    I changed MAX_DAYS_IN_TMP from 0 to 3.
