[TIP] Ubuntu 1 MB /tmp Partition Problem

"After a quick look I found out the issue. Ubuntu had created another partition with /tmp being its mount point and its max size was set to 1 MB.

"A search told me that this occurs if you happen to run out of disk space on your root partition some time, so Ubuntu automatically limits the size of /tmp to squeeze as much out of the remaining space as it can. Ideally, original behaviour of /tmp should be restored once you recover some space but it doesn't happen."
