| IMHO Linux has very good caching mechanism, so there is no need of
| ramdisks (er, ramfs or tmpfs) in most situations.
| On the contrary, Solaris is using tmpfs for /tmp and /var/run. I really
| like this idea, so after Gentoo install I always add
| none /tmp tmpfs size=64M,mode=1777 0 0
| to my fstab. Your preferences may differ.
I do this as well. On my laptop, I also mount /var/log as tmpfs to reduce the
number of writes (and hence prolong battery life).
A computer owner who can read the manual.
