    Used chirpy's method

    /etc/init.d/chkservd stop
    /etc/init.d/mysql stop
    umount /var/tmp
    umount /tmp
    replace "256000" "512000" -- /scripts/securetmp
    rm /usr/tmpDSK
    /scripts/securetmp --auto
    cd /tmp
    ln -s /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
    /etc/init.d/mysql start
    /etc/init.d/chkservd start
    df

    # Add the following line before /scripts/securetmp to /etc/rc.d/rc.local
    replace "256000" "512000" -- /scripts/securetmp

    Its not increasing in size. I got no errors either. I rebooted before I began and even after. /tmp is only 190MB now. Anyone know what the issue could be? I want /tmp to be about 2GB in size

    edit /etc/rc.local and remove the "/scripts/securetmp --auto" line.

    /etc/init.d/chkservd stop
    /etc/init.d/mysql stop
    umount /var/tmp
    umount /tmp
    rm /usr/tmpDSK
    /scripts/updatenow
    replace "256000" "512000" -- /scripts/securetmp
    /scripts/securetmp
    /etc/init.d/mysql start
    /etc/init.d/chkservd start


    Try that (should be no "--auto" option when running from command line).

    when I execute: umount /tmp I receive the message: umount: /tmp: device is busy :confused:

    My DF:

    root@ns1 [~]# df

    Go on, have a guess
    Indeed it will be busy. You should try the following to release it:

    service chkservd stop
    service httpd stop
    service mysql stop
    service postgresql stop

    umount /tmp


    If it's still coming up busy, you need to find out what processes have files open on it:

    lsof | grep /tmp

    You'll need to kill off any processes listed. When you're done, restart the services you killed and:

    service postgresql start
    service mysql start
    service httpd start
    service chkservd start

    Hi,

    Didn't work.
    I execute:

    service chkservd stop
    service httpd stop
    service mysql stop
    service postgresql stop

    umount /tmp
    Message:
    umount: /tmp: device is busy

    and:
    lsof | grep /tmp

    The terminal is stopped, nothing is listed.

    I try to execute:
    umount /tmp

    And the message returns:
    umount: /tmp: device is busy

    My df :

    root@ns1 [/]# df
    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda3 68437272 53650044 11310764 83% /
    /dev/sda1 101089 14922 80948 16% /boot
    none 512696 0 512696 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/tmpMnt 984248 282816 651432 31% /tmp

    What is that " none "?

    My fstab:

    /dev/sda3 / ext3 defaults,usrquota 1 1
    /dev/sda1 /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
    none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    none /proc proc defaults 0 0
    none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
    /dev/sda2 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
    /dev/tmpMnt /tmp ext2 loop,noexec,nosuid,rw 0 0
