yaourt hard disk full [SOLVED-->Change tool]

Hi,
when i try to install a large package (anaconda) yaourt takes all the free space of my /tmp directory which is on tmpfs (command df -h). And when it takes 100% the system has to be rebooted

df -h
dev                3,8G       0  3,8G   0% /dev
run                3,8G    1,2M  3,8G   1% /run
/dev/sda2           36G     26G  7,8G  77% /
tmpfs              3,8G     80M  3,8G   3% /dev/shm
tmpfs              3,8G       0  3,8G   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
tmpfs              3,8G    1,5G  2,4G  39% /tmp
/dev/sda4           52G     38G   12G  77% /home
/dev/sda1          147G    105G   42G  72% /WINDOWS
tmpfs              775M     16K  775M   1% /run/user/1000

I also tried to modify /etc/yaourtrc to make it use /tmp on my home directory but it did not work

TMPDIR="/home/user/tmp"

I even did that to unmount tmpfs but everything failed

systemctl unmask tmp.mount

Is there a way to make yaourt use /tmp on my directory and not the "RAM tmpfs"
Thanks
Sincerely

Mod note: Not an installation issue, moving to AUR issues...

The unsolved issues mentioned are likely to corrupt your system beyond repair.
Please remove yaourt.


Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: yaourt hard disk full [SOLVED-->Change tool]

Maximally ironic when you switch from a tool that might have a small chance to cause harm to tools that are guaranteed to break your system. octopi does partial upgrades on a schedule, while pikaur has in its short existence a longer history of breakage than yaourt in 12 years.

Just stick to makepkg and steer clear from all these "helpers" unless you specifically know why you need one.

edit: Reading the yaourt man page would have directly solved the issue in this case.

Re: yaourt hard disk full [SOLVED-->Change tool]

It did exactly the same with pikaur, the solution is to change directory of makepkg.conf to make makepkg use /home/USER/tmp directory instead of the tmpfs one.
