With no size option, /tmp will default to half of ram. I would just add
the "size" option, so change the fourth parameter to
"size=10G,defaults", and you'll have a 10gig /tmp.

MAKE SURE that ram+swap is bigger, or a "/tmp is full" will crash your

If you've not got any free space on your local disk, you could always
add a swap file instead of a partition, but if you follow my suggestion
of a 10Gb /tmp, you need to add at least four more gig of ram or swap.

> 3) Try to buy more RAM in order to get 8GB instead of 4GB
YES. I don't know what ram your machine takes, but DDR3 is about GBP15
for a 4Gb stick at the moment. If your machine will take more, go for it...

Oh - and as with most things linux, it'll only use the huge /tmp space
if it needs it, so you can "set and forget" and you'll have all your ram
for normal use unless the /tmp steals it ...
