Mount /var/run as tmpfs

Feature state

openSUSE-11.2
Rejected Information
openSUSE-11.3
Rejected Information
openSUSE-11.4
Done

Description

/var/run should be mounted as tmpfs.

This would avoid the cleaning of stale files or sockets on bootup and avoid atime updates of any mounted filesystems. This is required for eg powermanagement, which currently wakes up the system from any idle states for a socket operation.

Services must be modified not to depend on a preexisting content in /var/run upon startup. RPMs must be modified to not place anything there.

somehow SLES/SLED got out of sync here. Matching.

There are no resources for this feature. Please postpone, (as agreed with MgE)

Just as a side note this feature will require an effort of aprox. 1 week, together with #303810 (they averlap about 95%)

Any requirements on the size for the tmpfs or should the default of tmpfs be
used?

Kay replied by personal mail: Size doesn't matter. /var/lock should also be on tmpfs.

Christoph, please reject with openSUSE 11.2, because disk encryption we can't promise this feature for 11.2. It may get done as bonus if encryption gets done earlier than expected, but we can't commit to it (which is what rejection means, which does not mean we may work on it). It is the next thing we will work on after encryption support.

Kay, is this still feature desired now with relatime as default? or can be closed forever?

icons/user_comment.png K. S. wrote: (7 years ago)

It is a good feature to have, because we don't want to cleanup the dir on bootup.

Systemd has this mandatory and you can't even disable it.

This feature is done with using systemd. The scripts mount /var/run already and packages get fixed. I don't think any changes in YaST are needed, so I guess this can be marked as done. Duncan, please check for YaST work - and if none is needed, mark as done.

When systemd mounts it and no entry in fstab is desired the feature is done
from my side.

I'm sure the mounting happens after potentially mounting /var.

Jiri, assuming SLE12 uses systemd, this feature can be marked as done.
