/tmp as tmpfs?

Should you have enough physical memory in your system (I'm doing this with 4Gb)

mount /tmp as a tmpfs

my line from /etc/fstab

tmpfs /tmp tmpfs auto,size=512M,uid=0,gid=0,mode=1777 0 0

There are some progs that store data between reboots in /tmp (although they should use /var/tmp) so it's potentially dangerous.

It means that thumbnails stored here get wiped and regenerated after every boot but if the data in /tmp is in memory then it's quicker (no HDD access time) and it is lost at power down.

(running on opensuse 11.1 and yet to see any problems)

Intel Beignet Is Working Out Surprisingly Well For OpenCL On Linux

Beignet is the project out of Intel's Open-Source Technology Center for exposing GPGPU/compute capabilities out of Ivy Bridge hardware and newer when using a fully open-source Linux stack.

While I've been writing about Intel's Beignet project since early 2013, it's probably been about a year now since I tried out the code, which is developed by Intel's OTC graphics team in China. This weekend I tried out Beignet v0.9.2 as trying out the newest Intel OpenCL code has been on my TODO list for a while and it's been working out rather well in my initial tests. Read more
