Subject: [gentoo-user] tmpfs for portage: how much?
Date: Tue, 21 Jan 2014 17:04:01
1 Hi Gentoo-users,
3 I would like to use tmpfs for all the package-compilation
4 to spare my SSD from too many writing-cycles, but I can not
5 guess how much do I need. I'm rather limited with RAM,
6 if I use more than 512MB for /var/tmp/portage, my server
7 lowers buffers/cache to nearly zero and starts swapping...
9 So what do your think? Would it be enought to have 512MB
10 for packages like GCC, Apache, MySQL, Sendmail, Bind?
11 These are the biggest, rest are much smaller...
