    Hi there,

    I'm having trouble using the official installer; it seems that, no matter what you set the "download to" location to, the installer will always attempt to download to /tmp. The issue is that my /tmp partition is only 300MB (because when I installed Linux I never thought any programs would need more than that amount of space.

    Resizing the partition is sadly not an option, and it seems that the installer doesn't respect the TMP, TEMP, or TEMPDIR environment variables (so I can't force it to use a different directory).

    Is there any way around this issue?
