Does Debian need /tmp while booting the system?
# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
rootfs 36G 14G 20G 42% /
udev 1005M 0 1005M 0% /dev
tmpfs 202M 724K 202M 1% /run
/dev/disk/by-uuid/6c64a692 36G 14G 20G 42% /
tmpfs 5,0M 0 5,0M 0% /run/lock
tmpfs 404M 220K 404M 1% /tmp
tmpfs 404M 388K 404M 1% /run/shm
/dev/sdc1 97G 2,2G 90G 3% /media/22b8b2bc
/dev/sdc3 817G 268G 508G 35% /media/extern
Because i want to move my temp folder to my external hard drive (/dev/sdc3) using a symbolic link while i am not sure WHEN in the boot process my system is able to mount that external hard drive. I don't want to take the risk that my system needs that folder during boot time BEFORE it is able to mount that specific drive.

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
I have done this with Red Hat distributions, but on file systems that are mounted as part of the boot process - they are in /etc/fstab. IE, once the system is up, and before you log in, you need to have a valid /tmp, whether a physical directory, a mounted directory, or a symbolic link to a valid directory.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
Personally I wouldn't touch them:
