    SubjectRe: Is /dev/shm needed?
        Hi Robert :))

    Ok, then :)))) I'm testing /tmp over tmpfs right now. I don't
    notice a great improvement in speed. I have plenty of RAM for my box,
    and I think that, just as you said, when I'm compiling the contents
    of the /tmp are always cached, no matter if using tmpfs or not.

    I'll try with higher loads and more processes trying to fill up
    /tmp ;))

    >See Documentation/filesystems/tmpfs.txt for more information.

    I'm afraid my 2.4.16 doesn't come with that file :((( My fault,
    probably, although I don't remember touching the docs :???

    Thanks a lot for your help :)
