It's a problem of RHEL6.
You are adorer having one partition / . I prefer to have /tmp on difrent
partition (with noexec, nosuid, nodev, noatime, and a few nofoo more),
/var/log on diffrent partition (it's not nice to have /var partition
full). From the same reason i have /var on diffrent partition, if you
have full /var i can have problem with init scripts and even with login
using ssh. Oh, i prefer to have /usr/portage on partition formated with
smaller block than default 4kB.
I prefer to... I expect a littleflexibility from linux, otherwise i can
use OS which impel me to keep my docs in "My documents" and ma home in
"Document and settings".
