    I was checking out terminal and noticed a bunch of stuff in /tmp. I like to keep a clean house, so I typed rm -r * from /tmp. My phone locked up. I did a battery pull and all is good, but the files and directories are still there.

    I guess you could say I live dangerously, eh? So, is it safe to remove that stuff?

    those tmp files are being used, so removing them may easily crash webOS. /tmp is not like temp files on windows.

    Odd. When I was an AIX sysadmin there was no way I'd keep live files in /tmp. Yeah, some app's would throw stuff in there, but just by the nature of /tmp (UNIX) I always knew it was safe to clean up.
