comment Mount /tmp on swap in Linux
Thanks Hennes. The advantage for me would be privacy. I was hoping to mount tmp on an encrypted swap. You could use a separate partition for tmp, but I already have four partitions.

OK, maybe this will start to clarify things a bit (I'm a bit new to this Unix thingy): Can tmpfs be used with swap only, that is, without using even a single byte of RAM?

No, you're right, that's not it. What I want to know is, how can I concurrently use my active swap partition as a tmp directory under a running Linux system.
