[SOLVED] - The disk drive for /tmp is not ready yet or is not present - Ubutntu 12.04

Just press Ctrl + Alt + T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

 sudo mv /tmp /tmp_old  
 sudo mkdir /tmp  
 sudo chmod 1777 /tmp  

Reboot, and it should be resolved.


  1. why does it happen?.

    is it a hard drive problem?

  2. Not a physical damage. Seems like some error with mounting the tmp directory or possibly a bug:


Thank you for your Feedback!
