Thread: consultation repository

  1. #1

    Default consultation repository

    Hello,

    I have a repository that is not where it came.

    Name: PK_TMP_DIR
    path: / var/tmp/TmpDir.NLNiRT

    Why is there so that you serve?

    Thanks.

    I do not know if others understand what you mean, but I do not.

    Can you please provide more iinformation. Please, we do not know what you are doing, having, etc. You are not even telling the most basic information like which level of openSUSE you have. What are you doing (statements or program you use, where you click, etc.). What happens (exectly and precise). What did you think that should happen instead.

    i also can't understand the question...try again..

    but, the _system_ uses /var/tmp/ for a lot of _temporary_
    things...normally you should not do anything with the stuff in
    /var/tmp, just leave it alone...

    each time you start up the system will put stuff in there for its own
    use....like, just now i see in mine TmpDir.911US *and* other things,
    that i will *not* touch.

    if you are short on space, move some movies, music, photos, etc to
    DVDs (for example) and leave everything outside of your /home/[yourID]
    alone..(unless you wanna kill your system)

    most folks can save a LOT of room by removing the game system ;-)

    i answered it one way, i try again:

    when any application runs it may need space to temporarily store
    stuff...two kinds of stuff:

    1. some stuff it will never need again if the machine is shut down,
    that stuff it puts in /tmp (because it is ok to empty /tmp when the
    system is not running)

    2. but, some stuff an application may need even after a boot, that
    stuff goes into /var/tmp, the next time the application is run it will
    _expect_ its long life but still temporary stuff to still be in
    /var/tmp, if it is not there it complains, aborts, crashes or
    otherwise gets ill..

    the application's programmer decides which stuff goes where..

    I am not sure I fully agree with that explanation.

    A better place for applications to store semi-persistent data is /var/cache. I have seen /var/tmp symlinked to /tmp on some systems and, as such, it could be expected to conform to the rules associated with the use of /tmp. An application should not behave badly in the event that data in /var/tmp goes missing. It should recover gracefully and, if necessary, recreate that data.

    of course mine was not intended to be an in depth discourse on all the
    ins-and-outs of the file system hierarchy standard..

    generally when a user who has been here a short time this kind of
    *basic* file system question i usually try to give a generally usable
    answer which might help the user understand the environment, and not
    do unnecessary damage (while looking for stuff to delete--which common
    around here)..

    alternative answers may be better, even if covering information not
    sought or all the shades of grey, like here: http://tinyurl.com/26gpd

    ok thanks.

    I do not understand is because it has created the entry in the list of repositories. Navigating the directory I see that you have created oracle virtualbox.

    I guess I can delete this entry without problems.

    Sorry, but I still do not understand you. Be carefull deleting things you do not understand.

    You get the list of repositories by doing
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    When you want us to comment on your list of repositories, post the output of this statement here.
