#23403 closed task (fixed)

Use tor-browser-build/tmp rather than /tmp as default tmp directory

We are currently using /tmp as the default temporary directory, however it seems to be quite common that this directory is mounted on a small tmpfs partition, which makes the build fail because of lack of disk space.

To avoid this, we should instead use a tmp directory inside the tor-browser-build directory by default.

Looks good, thanks. Applied to master (commit b2dd98160a1c07f73f7ab66475cb02be295e4ee5).

In commit 84881888708f4fd163b1867193fed6471d0c53a9 I added this tmp directory to the .gitignore file.
