I dont think this is an adequate solution.
/tmp is filling up during the portmanager run. in other words - while I
am running /tmp fills up. so it needs to be erased periodically while
portmanager is running or else no other packages can be downloaded
are there other solutions?
what about a sym link to /var/tmp - will that break anything?
Are you sure that "clear_tmp_enabled" doesnt just force clearing tmp
