Ticket #10617 (closed defect: fixed)
Drop /var/cache/yum tmpfs
|Reported by:||martin.langhoff||Owned by:||cjb|
|Action Needed:||no action||Verified:||no|
|Deployments affected:||Blocked By:|
The /var/cache/yum tmpfs has several problems:
- Too small, often yum runs out of space on XO-1
- Puts the OS under severe memory pressure, which remains until reboot. This makes XO-1 units completely unusable under Sugar after a yum run.
- Forces a large download every time.
Yum invokations are not so frequent, so wearout should not be a concern. To address disk space usage it might be better to delete old/stale yum cache data on a cronjob.
