Btw, I disagree that there is not an installation issue worth attention. It's illogical to default tmp so small. If this LVM configuration I'm using requires manual size configuration(s) as to avoid a tiny tmp or other folder, this should he mentioned during setup if not part of the setup process. The setup flow goes in one of two main directions from the start; manual partitioning or default (automatic setup). I could have manually partitioned had I known I had to, yet I let Debian do this assuming it would as I was using the default auto setup option.

FWIW I still disagree with your disagreement :)

300MB for tmp is usually more than enough and, I think, is an acceptable default for a separate partition setup - having a default size of (for example) 4+ GB for a partition that in most cases will hold < 100MB of data would, IMHO, be a bug ...

As well as the prompt in the partitioning step to choose "all in one" if you're unsure, it's also covered in the install documentation (which you read, right? :) )

https://www.debian.org/releases/stable/ ... -partition

https://www.debian.org/releases/stable/amd64/apcs02.html.en wrote:/tmp: temporary data created by programs will most likely go in this directory. 40–100MB should usually be enough. Some applications — including archive manipulators, CD/DVD authoring tools, and multimedia software — may use /tmp to temporarily store image files. If you plan to use such applications, you should adjust the space available in /tmp accordingly

Debian provides a lot more than your average "cool desktop focussed derivative distro" aimed at casual users, and consequently requires a bit more thought about what you want.

Never read the Debian documentation. Too much of a overly confident narcissist for that.
It appears I'm right at home here.

Thanks again guys.

what about the topic at hand?
i.e. compiling android studio? success pointing it to another (temp) folder?
